BELGIAN STATE LOSS OF €208 MILLION “STOLEN” IN FOREIGN PENSION FUND SCAM

On 30th September, Customs Today reported that the State of Belgium had reimbursed over €208 million in withholding taxes to foreign pension funds that had no right to the pay-outs and that one British national had been arrested recently under a Belgian investigation into the presumed fraud.  The Brussels Office of the Public Prosecutor has been conducting an investigation since 2015 into a sophisticated scam.
