Five legal advisers detained by the CBA
Six individuals, including five lawyers from Wrocław, detained by the CBA Regional Office in Warsaw.
The officers of the CBA Regional Office in Warsaw, jointly with the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Wrocław, have been carrying out an investigation into using forged documents to initiate execution proceedings in order to recover liabilities which did not exist. These practices, used by a group of legal advisers, concerned funds accumulated in court deposit accounts which, due to various circumstances, could not be paid out to entitled persons and entities.
In connection with this case, the CBA officers have detained six persons in Lower Silesia (Dolny Śląsk), including five legal advisers from Wrocław. Moreover, the offices of the legal advisers and the bailiffs have been searched.
In the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Wrocław, the detainees will face charges of fraud, money laundering and the use of documents fraudulently attesting an untruth.
It is another operation to this effect. In January this year, a lawyer from Wrocław was detained within this investigation.
