Soud za daňové úniky oddálilo stíhání znalce v kauze OKD

The court for tax evasion was delayed because of a prosecution of the expert in OKD affair Because of arrest of businessman Martin Uher and his companion Pavlína Nováčková in 2006, the police started to uncover one of the biggest cases regarding tax evasion for sold propellant. Finally after ten years of investigating, public prosecutor managed to bring five persons to justice. Unfortunately the court denied taking an expert’s opinion, regarding accountancy of interested companies, into consideration. The main author Rudolf Doucha is prosecuting because of a distorted opinion on his basis the Czech Republic should lose 5.7 billion Czech crowns, when the state sold their own stake in OKD. Doucha is suspended, so he can’t confirm his expert’s opinion. By force of these circumstances, the president of the senate decided to make a new expert’s analysis, said a press agent of the Pilsen district court. But this should be a problem because it has been lost some important accountancy documents, according to press Právo. Three businessmen, one accountant and one layer face several charges of fraud and legalization revenues from criminal activity. According to the expert analysis, already mentioned Uher and Nováčková were the main actors of the fraud and through companies Solitor, Radeost and OilMaster imported since 2014 to 2016 to Czech Republic hundreds of tank trucks with petrol and did not pay the full excise tax. Accused businessmen did not manipulate with tax return and they officially declare their duty to pay the debts. They said that they wanted to pay, but their companies do not have money, so they can’t afford it. To make this impression, they show fake transactions. In the papers, it looks like they do not have money, but in fact, they have big profits. Prosecuted traders used the opportunity of the introduction of free trade within the European Union in May 2004, when customs controls disappeared from the borders.
