Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Two tax in­spec­tors lost their ap­peals against jail sen­tences for fraud in Thes­sa­loniki yesterday. An ap­peals court handed prison terms of five and seven years to the two civil ser­vants af­ter find­ing them guilty of work­ing with three other col­leagues to au­tho­rize value-added tax re­turns for a com­pany based on bo­gus in­voices. The firm is said to have il­le­gally re­ceived some 900,000 eu­ros be­tween 1996 and 1998. The court, how­ever, did de­cide to re­duce the sen­tences of three tax in­spec­tors who were given life terms in the ini­tial trial and had been serv­ing their time in prison since then.
