Seven persons detained for money laundering
Entrepreneurs detained in few voivodships by the officers of the CBA. In the background fictitious transfers for almost 6,5 mln and money laundering.
The officers of the Regional Office of the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau have detained 7 entrepreneurs from the furniture, textile and service industries from the Śląskie, Wielkopolskie, Opolskie, Świętokrzyskie, Dolnośląskie and Łódzkie voivodships. The investigation concerns laundering of money from penal fiscal offenses. Everything seems to indicate that the representatives of particular companies transferred money for issuing fictitious invoices, and then they returned certain funds with the deduction of commissions. Findings of the investigators indicate that almost 6.5 million zlotys have been transferred in this way. The money came from crimes consisting in fictitious trade in goods and issuing unreliable invoices. Such action was intended to frustrate or significantly hinder determining their criminal origin.
The detainees will be transferred to the Regional Prosecutor’s Office in Łódź, where they will be charged, among others, with attesting untruth in documents and money laundering.
