Two high-ranking officials have cleaned 3.7 million euros in properties, the family members were also included in the scheme, this is how they tried to save some assets, the Financial Intelligence Agency reveals the hard details

Two high-ranking officials have cleaned 3.7 million euros in properties, the

Nearly 3.7 million euros have been laundered in the real estate sector, by 2 people who exercised public functions, one of whom has been arrested for years. The Financial Intelligence Agency says that money laundering schemes have been identified for years, mainly in the construction sector. The method? Properties with large values ??are bought without justifying the source of income and family members are used. According to the report, an official in a state institution, who has been arrested for years for abuse of office and possible connection with organized crime, together with his family, within 7 years have signed commission contracts investing in real estate as a service unit and apartments with a total value of about 1.5 million dollars. This same official has ordered from the same construction company several properties together with his partner worth 600,000 USD, which he has paid in advance, saying that the source of income is "business profit and income provided by immigration". In total, the official laundered $2.1 million, according to the Financial Intelligence Agency. But from the performed verifications it has been found that the source of income is not justified. For this reason, immediately after the start of the investigations, this person and his family members signed successive revocation contracts of these property order contracts, in order to avoid their seizure. Similar is the case of a public functionary, who, according to the report, during the years 2014-2018, invested 270,000 euros in real estate, even though she was not employed. While since 2018 it has assumed a public function, and during the period 2020-2023 it has purchased service units, apartments and villas worth 1.4 million euros, in total in both cases, 1.6 million euros. The source of income declared by her was business, but in fact the profits did not justify these investments. The verifications identified her close relationship with a person suspected of being involved in drug trafficking, for this reason the case was sent for further investigation to the law enforcement bodies.

Specific case:

Citizen X, an official in a state institution, was arrested in 2023 for abuse of office and possible links to organized crime. During the investigations of the law-enforcement bodies, cases of possible abuse of office were found, committed over the years by citizen X, from which he is suspected to have benefited from large sums of money. AIF has carried out verifications from which it turned out that for a period of 7 years, citizen X and his close family members (mother, father, brother, sister) have signed purchase contracts investing in real estate such as service units and apartments in a total value of approx. 1.5 million USD, near the same construction company C. It is noted that the order contract concluded by citizen X and his wife was worth less than its real value and to some extent justifiable compared to the legal source of income his. From the detailed financial analysis, it was found that the values ??for ordering the assets were paid by citizen X and his family members during the period 2015 – 2018 through a series of deposits that fluctuate in the values ??of 5,000–30,000 USD. The funds were deposited to the bank account of construction company C, in a second level bank in the country, with frequencies, dates or times that matched or approximated each other.

The details

The source for the funds invested in real estate is declared as business income and income obtained from emigration. From the verifications on his businesses, it turned out that in 2010, citizen X, together with 3 other citizens, founded the trading company XY with the object "import - export of food products, industrial and investments in the field of construction, etc." After a period of several years, citizen X sells his share of shares to one of the partners, citizen Z, with whom he also has family ties. The brother of citizen X, citizen Y, is also connected to this business in an administrative role. As far as family members are concerned, it turns out that only the brother has newly registered a Natural Person subject. The income earned from these businesses is minimal, but the turnover as a whole is also low. From the further analysis carried out for other members of the family circle of citizen X, including citizen Z, it has been found that in the same period they concluded contract contracts with the same construction company C, in total value of about 600,000 USD, as well paid in advance, in the same period, with deposits in the bank account of the construction company at the same bank as the citizen X, where they declared the income secured by emigration as a source. From the verifications, no income is found to justify any of the investments made in real estate by this citizen and his family members. In the first quarter of 2023, it was observed that citizen X and his close family members (mother, father, brother, sister) have signed successive revocation contracts of these order contracts," the report states.
