After years of investigation, charges were brought in the case, in which, according to the information of our newspaper, serious and respected businessmen were also involved.
According to a previously released statement by the DC Prosecutor’s Office, the DC Prosecutor’s Office has filed charges against 11 people in a criminal case related to the unauthorized use of EU funding, which was initiated on the basis of a complaint by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF). ), for the crime of budget fraud causing particularly great financial damage and other crimes. We’ve now learned more details from company spokeswoman Bettina Bagoli and other sources.
Billions of defendants are being sought, including one who won more than 300 million forints and three bogus applications. Some have failed to pay by fraudulently obtaining EU funds, issuing bogus invoices in chains of subcontractors in order to reduce the VAT payable.
The D.C. Prosecutor’s Office filed a motion for prison sentences, fines, bans from company management, and forfeiture of assets to be enforced in the indictment or suspended for a probationary period. We learned from spokeswoman Bettina Bagoli that there is a defendant who, if found guilty, could be sentenced to 5 to 11 years in prison according to the law.
As far as we know, they are all free to defend themselves, and have never been arrested. The capital’s prosecutor’s office – as usual – did not reveal the names this time, not even the monograms, but we know from other sources that there will be a surprise in court, where well-known faces in business and social life, and even in the world of sports, will appear. One of them, for example, runs a company that deals with both staffing and IT services.
During the investigation, within the framework of asset insurance, financial investigators confiscated approximately HUF 150 million from three companies in order to secure the confiscation of assets, for which the Public Prosecutor’s Office had applied in the indictment. But they didn’t earn that much, and their bank accounts were also exploited. The Public Prosecutor’s Office proposed imposing fines on a total of nine companies, ensuring that the court would freeze approximately 270 million Swiss francs in the bank accounts of seven companies.
