Detentions and charges for acting to the detriment of a capital group
At least 96 million zlotys siphoned from the assets of one of Polish enterprises. Three persons detained by the CBA.
Agents of the Regional Office of the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau in Białystok have detained in Lower Silesia and Mazovia three persons associated with the activity of the capital group, which consists of companies from the biofuels and spirits industries. Among the detained persons was, among others, the President of the Board of the whole group.
As it has been determined in the course of the proceedings, the detainees acted to the detriment of the shareholders and owners of the capital group by abusing their rights and leading to the removal of assets, including movable property, real estate, securities and property rights of great value. Everything seems to indicate that they were siphoned to Polish and foreign entities controlled by the detained President. Preliminary estimates indicate at least 96 million zlotys of damage in connection with this practice.
The officers of the CBA simultaneously perform searches in 13 locations in Lower Silesia, Wielkopolska and Mazovia.
Data carriers and documentation necessary in the course of proceedings are being secured. Activities are carried out, among others at company headquarters and law firms.
The detainees will be transferred to the National Prosecutor’s Office in Białystok, where they will be charged.
The proceedings are conducted entirely by the Regional Office of the CBA in Białystok.
These are the first detentions into this case. The case is still developmental.
