The police has accused eight people of tax fraud in connection with fuel imports to the Czech Republic, which deprived the state of one billion crowns, a police spokesman said on Tuesday. The suspects, a network of company managers and salesmen, bought fuel in neighbouring Austria and Germany, doctoring purchasing contracts and their accounting books to make huge profits on unpaid VAT for over two years. If found guilty they face up to 12 years in prison.
