Tax evasion bill: Tax evaders get rid of charges if they pay damages

Suspects of tax evasion will get rid of the charges in their criminal record if one of them pays the total damages, according to an amendment adopted to the Tax evasion law by the deputies on Tuesday.

The amendment have been previously voted by the Social Democrats in the Chamber’s legal committee to the Opposition’s dismay.

The Opposition parties claimed that it is red herring of the ruling power to help offenders get away with jail.

The prejudice in this case is set following a special calculation formula: an increase of 20% is added to the initial prejudice, plus a series of penalties.
