Detained for fictitious invoices worth over PLN 3.5 million
The CBA has detained further persons in connection with the marketing of fictitious VAT invoices. There are already 32 suspects in the case.
Two owners of a construction company operating in Silesia were detained yesterday by the officers of the CBA Regional Office in Katowice. This is the seventh procedural operation within the investigation which has been carried out jointly with the District Prosecutor's Office in Kraków. The proceedings concern an organised crime group which introduces fictitious VAT invoices into circulation. The value of the invoices disclosed in the course of the investigation amounts up to PLN 35 million.
After the searches were completed, the detainees were brought to the prosecutor's office where they heard charges of using fictitious invoices amounting to over PLN 3.5 million. The practice took place in the years 2018 - 2020.
So far, 32 individuals have faced charges in the course of the investigation. Evidence is still being collected and analysed by investigators, who do not rule out further detentions.
