Woman held for Ft 1bn VAT fraud

A woman has defrauded the state of Ft 941 million in VAT by running a criminal organisation trading in food industry products, mainly sugar and cooking oil, a court has found.

The court ordered the woman’s detention for a month, as she may endanger the judicial process.

Separate criminal proceedings are under way against the suspect for a similar crime.

The suspect appealed the ruling, which is not binding.
