When the fraud squad raided Verget: compare and contrast with 1855

Maine et Jean-Marie Guffens-Heynen

The film of the persecution of Jean-Marie Guffens by the French Douane and the Répression des Fraudes (1855 exclus) now has English sub-titles. Click here See earlier report on Jim's Loire about this extraordinary affair here.

They'd better spend time on the 1855 file !

Nicolas. An excellent idea but remember their name: Répression des Fraudes (1855 exclus)...

Jim Budd said...

If La Répression des Fraudes does include 1855 why have they not investigated this company's regular practice of chargiing TVA on wines that they claim are about to be delivered but then are not delivered. La Répression should be checking how 1855 can charge TVA on goods they appear not to have bought.

Did they wreck the whole 2010 vintage for them? Was any kind of compensation given?

Good question JT. I don't know but I suspect not.
