More than 20 searches were conducted Friday morning by the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) in Bucharest and the counties of Ilfov, Braila and Constanta, in a file of fiscal evasion and money laundering. Among the persons targeted is businessman Cristian Borcea.
The operation aims at destructuring a specialized group in fiscal evasion and money laundering operations, stiri.tvr.ro reports.
The suspected offenses allegedly took place during January 2010-October 2013, on two fictitious transaction networks developed on a common core of companies/persons in view of registering unreal expenses in the bookkeeping, in view of failing to pay taxes to the state budget and to launder money, through fictitious services and acquisition contracts or internal/external financial transfers.
In the target are two former Rompetrol managers and businessman Cristian Borcea.
Searches were conducted also at Borcea’s domicile in Voluntari, Ilfov County.
Cristian Borcea, former main shareholder of Dinamo Bucharest Foortball Club, was released on parole in July, after serving four years and four months of his six year and four months sentence in the Transfers file.
