By means of forged documents and bank certificates a criminal organization borrowed 300 million HUF then tried to lauder the money.
At a press conference, NAV (National Tax and Customs Office) confirmed that using forged documents, a Debrecen accountancy office together with companies under the management of relatives and friends borrowed large amounts of loan from several financial institutions. These companies handled the money jointly to show themselves creditworthy.
The organization took a total of 300 million HUF which they began to pay back but then they got rid of the companies and sold them to foreign buyers. They transferred the money to other bank accounts or withdrew it in cash.
The investigators arrested 3 persons and ordered a curfew against them. If the court finds them guilty they may get up to 20 years in prison for committing organized crime.
