LEADERS OF TAX FRAUD RING ARRESTED

 

Two people were arrested in Hungary, suspected of defrauding the Hungarian state of 9.7 million euros, the European Union agency for criminal justice cooperation, Eurojust, said. The two led a criminal organisation which bought basic food products, mainly oil and sugar, in Croatia and sold it in Hungary without paying taxes, Eurojust said. The arrests were a result of a coordinated operation of Hungarian, Slovak, Austrian, Czech and Serbian authorities, which involved 110 police and 33 house searches, the body said.
