On 13 December, Daily Sabah reported that police in Istanbul and 6 other provinces arrested 28 suspects in an ongoing operation to involving defrauding the state by inflating export figures.  Arrest warrants have been issued for 23 more suspects.  The suspects are accused of forging invoices for goods exported to Russia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Romania and Kosovo at a much lower fee than stated in the invoices and the suspects allegedly defrauded the state some $53.3 million by claiming greater tax refunds than they were entitled to.


Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page where you can do so, and where one-off contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymea3coffee.com/KoIvM842y
