The District Prosecutor’s Office in Częstochowa has been investigating the fictitious trade in scrap metal and steel products for several years. The proceedings were separated from another investigation, which ended in 2013 with indictments filed against the court against 23 people. At the end of September, 9 people were detained and accused of participating in an organized criminal group involved in tax evasion. Five suspects, after the turmoil in court, were arrested for two months. They are accused of extorting nearly PLN 7 million in VAT from the State Treasury and money laundering – at least PLN 21 million.
