28-05-2012

Anti-corruption police have arrested seven people in connection with a 500 million crown tax fraud case. The police say the group faked the purchase of cards for a prepaid internet webhosting service, Ikropolis.com, then fictitiously sold the cards to Slovakia and filed for over-taxation. In all, 17 people are under suspicion in the case, which the police say is an entirely new method of tax fraud. They face up to ten years imprisonment if convicted.
