Over 75 searches are ongoing in 20 counties on Wednesday in a tax evasion file, with the prejudice mounting to RON 25 M, about EUR 6 M. 50 searches are taking place in Caraș-Severin county. Investigators claim that the county prefect, Miu Nicolae Ciobanu is targeted.
Prosecutors say that Ciobanu would have been involved in this case in 2010, before taking over the prefect seat, when he owned a private company and used to register fictitious invoices in the bookkeeping papers in order to cut the taxable base.
Searches were underway also at the Fiscal Administration county HQs, as a director of the administration is also investigated.
20 companies are eyed in this case, under the suspicion of tax evasion, while 32 persons will be taken for hearings at the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT).
