Svindel med varm luft

Handlen med CO2 kvoter har (næsten selvfølgelig) ført til omfattende svindel med CO2 kvoter. Fra Europol

One year on from a Europol warning about an estimated 5 billion euros in damage for European taxpayers, caused by VAT-fraud within the EU Emission Trading System (ETS), law enforcement authorities around Europe continue to fight the criminal networks involved. In operations during 2010, several hundred offices all over Europe have been raided and more than 100 people arrested.

In the latest operation on 17 December 2010, the Italian Guardia di Finanza, under the instruction of Milan’s prosecution office, carried out raids on about 150 companies in eight different regions of Italy. These operations happened just a few weeks after the Italian Power Exchange (G.M.E) halted all trading in carbon credits due to a high number of abnormal transactions. The potential VAT-loss is estimated to reach 500 million euros.

Meget interessant at der er forskel på at handle med varm luft og så at svindle med varm luft. Jeg ved ikke hvorledes man skelner, men godt at EU ved at de ikke har fået den varme luft de har lagt ud for.
