As a result of operative-searching and investigative activities carried out by the representatives of Investigation Service of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia, criminal prosecution was initiated against two persons on the fact of manufacturing and using forged tax and official documents, as a group.
Investigation determined that the accused persons, in order to artificially confirm the relevant experience required for participation in public procurement and to create forged VAT asset, on behalf of the companies under their management, signed false contracts amongst each other regarding the completing construction works having value GEL 2 236 000. Later, they confirmed to each other the so-called Form №2, delivery-acceptance acts and issued forged tax invoices showing the allegedly completed works, thus created counterfeit VAT assets for the company in the amount of GEL 226 496.
As a result of the conducted investigative activities, the forged asset has been completely cancelled.
Investigation is underway under the Articles 210 and 362 of the Criminal Code of Georgia, which envisages imprisonment from 4 to 7 years.
