[Politics] Government calls for awareness of the “enormous social damage” caused by detained businessmen


Recommended Posts

The Minister of Finance, Mario Marcel, asked citizens this Friday to “become aware of the enormous social damage that tax fraud represents” after the historic coup perpetrated against tax evasion and after which at least 55 businessmen were arrested.

“It is the largest tax fraud that we have known so far,” said the head of the tax portfolio, who assured that the magnitude of what was defrauded “is equivalent to the construction of 25 family health centers, three highly complex hospitals and more.” of 15 high schools.”

It is worth mentioning that the Money Laundering Investigative Brigade of the Investigative Police (PDI) arrested 55 businessmen for issuing nearly 100,000 false invoices that would represent a tax loss of approximately 240,000 million Chilean pesos (about 275.5 million dollars). .

Police personnel raided 83 homes in 10 regions of the country on Thursday night to disrupt this alleged criminal organization that has operated since 2015 with medium-sized companies, many of them linked to the construction and services area.

Marcel stated that “these people created companies with the sole purpose of issuing fictitious invoices that would later serve to allow nearly 3,300 companies to make charges or generate false credits and thus reduce their tax payments.”

This case, he added, “makes us aware of the magnitude and enormous injustice that tax fraud represents in Chile.”

The Secretary of State also took the opportunity to call for the fiscal pact promoted by the Government. “A series of measures have been proposed to increase tax compliance and combat tax evasion. These include, among other things, the figure of the anonymous whistleblower, effective collaboration and increased penalties, among other things, for the issuance of false invoices,” he mentioned.

9 thousand Carabineros patrols, two high security prisons and nearly six thousand houses
The head of the General Secretariat of Government (Segegob), Minister Camila Vallejo, also addressed the case, highlighting that the arrest of more than 50 businessmen shows that “the SII complaint bore fruit, the institutions function and justice acts once further".

The head of Segegob also stressed that this is a crime of such magnitude that it is equivalent to several Cesfams, but also more than nine thousand Carabineros patrols, two high-security prisons and nearly six thousand houses.

In short, Minister Vallejo concluded, “all improvements to the living conditions of people do not reach those who need it most.” Therefore, in her opinion, “this blow to collar and tie crime is another concrete example that our country is making progress in the fight against organized crime, drug trafficking and corruption.” The publication was shared by President Boric on his X account.
