(ANSA) – TRIESTE, MAY 31 – A businessman from Trieste, with a history of fraud, was arrested and placed under house arrest for alleged tax fraud in the real estate sector.
The investigations, coordinated by the Trieste Public Prosecutor’s Office, were conducted by the Guardia di Finanza, which also seized in advance 1.5 million euros from the shareholders and legal representatives of two companies in Jesolo (Venice), which would appear to be the ultimate beneficiaries of the fraud they themselves conceived and implemented in competition between 2017 and 2020.
The investigations of the Economic-Financial Police Unit started with a report for fraud connected with the sale of a vehicle between private individuals. During the investigations, the investigators reconstructed the steps of an alleged tax fraud carried out through a triangulation of false invoices relating to the renovation and subsequent resale to private individuals of sea view apartments in a luxury residential complex in Jesolo. In detail, the entrepreneur, already burdened by eight sentences for fraud and a conviction for attempted extortion, would have issued invoices for non-existent operations, for about 1 million euros, relating to Project Manager services that would never have been performed. . Furthermore, he did not submit tax returns or pay the related taxes to the tax authorities. (HANDLE).
