(ANSA) – TURIN, 06 JUL – With the execution of 14 precautionary measures in prison, what has been defined as the “gang of entrepreneurs” was vanquished. The measures, carried out by the Carabinieri of the Turin Investigative Unit and issued by the Gip of the Court of the capital, concern entrepreneurs and accountants accused, in various capacities, of criminal association dedicated to multiple fraud, false invoicing, money laundering and usury.
The investigation began in 2019 against 115 suspects: according to the investigators, 25 companies had been created, thanks to accomplices or false documents and the association had managed to obtain energy efficiency certificates from the Energy Services Manager (GSE), which they were subsequently sold to third-party companies, obtaining an economic value for a total amount of approximately 25 million euros. On the other hand, what they had managed to obtain, through the acquisition of VAT credits and the issuance of non-existent invoicing, from financial and banking institutions is 50 million euros.
All the money, according to the accusations, was then laundered abroad, with the purchase of gold bars and coins, with loans at usurious rates. (HANDLE).
