The police are carrying out 146 searches in Bucharest and other 11 counties, targeting 90 people from IT and construction companies, suspected of money laundering and tax evasion.

They are believed to have created damages of EUR 30 million to the state budget.

Among the companies under the lens are IT firms UTI, Romsys and Total Network Solution as well as construction firms Strabag and Erbasu, according to Mediafax which quotes legal sources.

Under investigation in this file are more than 200 companies, which are suspected of creating fictitious circuits in order to avoid paying taxes to the state budget between 2011-2014, according to the press release from the Romanian Police, sent to Mediafax newswire.

“Through the involved companies, approximately EUR 100 million was  transferred to the individuals in question, and the money thus obtained was reintroduced in the illegal circuit  by making withdrawals from the bank accounts based on fictitious documents,” according to the press release.

The searches were carried out by the police force from the organized crime division in Bucharest, Arad, Arges, Dambovita, Giurgiu, Gorj, Ilfov, Olt, Sibiu, Teleorman, Valcea and Vrancea.
