Genoa: unpaid taxes of 2 million euros, two arrests. Seized watches and jewels for over 150 thousand euros
Genoa – The Guardia di Finanza of Genoa has carried out two custody orders, one in prison and one under house arrest, against an entrepreneur and his collaborator accused of fraudulent bankruptcy. During the searches, several luxury watches and jewels were confiscated for a value of over 150 thousand euros. The investigation started with a check on the contrast to illegal work among the door-to-door people who offer telephony, gas and electricity contracts.
According to the Finance, the entrepreneur, with an articulate elusive and distracting engineering system, set up three companies and managed to appropriate sums exceeding almost two million euros. The investigations revealed that the man did not pay the withholding tax for employees and other taxes relating to companies. The entrepreneur employed about eighty self-employed workers who were paid when he did not agree to enter into a contract. From what emerged the man had established a first company that was stripped until bankruptcy. In the meantime, two other companies were set up to continue the business, thus avoiding the payment of taxes.
