Two persons detained by the CBA
The director of the Tax Chamber in Kraków and a social adviser to the President of the NIK (Supreme Audit Office) have been detained by the CBA. The investigation has been carried out under the supervision of the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Białystok.
The officers of the CBA Regional Office in Kraków, under the supervision of the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Białystok, have been carrying out an investigation into the submission of fraudulent asset declarations by a person holding a public function.
In the course of the proceedings, the investigators gathered extensive evidence which was subjected to analysis. In connection with the findings, two operations have been carried out today. In the territory of the Małopolska Voivodship, the CBA officers detained Jakub B, a social adviser to the President of the Supreme Audit Office (NIK). Also in the territory of the Małopolska Voivodship, in cooperation with the officers of the Internal Inspection Bureau of the Ministry of Finance, the CBA officers detained Tadeusz G, Director of the Tax Chamber in Kraków.
After the completion of procedural activities, the detainees will be taken to the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Białystok where they will hear charges.
The evidence gathered by the investigators indicates that on several occasions the director of the Tax Chamber in Kraków disclosed information to an unauthorised person, which he obtained in the course of his official activities, thus exceeding his powers. Moreover, it has been established that having obtained information on the criminal offences, he did not fulfil his duties in this respect and did not notify relevant authorities.
As it has been found, on numerous occasions, the other detainee used documents which attested an untruth in the course of settlements with the Tax Offices in Kraków, as well as in order to obtain financial aid from the Małopolska Voivodeship Office in Kraków.
The investigation is in progress. Further activities are being planned.
