2 persons detained for trading fictitious invoices
Further two individuals have been detained in connection with the investigation into laundering the proceeds of criminal and fiscal offences.
The officers of the CBA Regional Office in Łódź have detained two men in connection with intermediation in the transfer of fictitious invoices amounting to about PLN 6 million.
In exchange for a few percent commission on the invoice amount, the detainees helped to pass the invoices on to individuals operating in the furniture industry, thus additionally facilitating money laundering and the depletion of tax liabilities.
Those are further detentions by the officers of the CBA Regional Office in Łódź. As reported in July of the last year, the CBA officers detained 7 individuals. The company representatives transferred money for issuing fictitious invoices, and then accepted the money with a commission deduction. The investigators' findings indicate that almost PLN 6.5 million was transferred in this way. So far, 11 individuals have been presented with charges.
The detainees will be taken to the Regional Prosecutor's Office in Łódź.
