Greek Companies Launder Money for Bulgarian Mafia - Report
An estimated twenty five Greek companies provide cover for the Bulgarian mafia, acting in northern Greece.
The information comes from a joint probe of Bulgarian and Greek police, cited by the Bulgarian 24 Chassa (24 Hours) daily.
The Greek companies launder money from illegal drugs and weapons trading and human trafficking.
In partnership with 10 bogus Bulgarian companies, the Greek conducted fake deals amounting to EUR hundreds of millions a year in scams to illegally drain Value Added Tax (VAT).
The tax fraud was discussed as early as May 2011 by Bulgarian Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov and Christos Papoutsis, the Greek Minister for Citizen Protection. This is when the probe began as well.
