PF and Revenue carry out “Open Bar” operation against businessmen who transferred R$ 137 million

This Monday morning (13), the Federal Police and the Federal Revenue launched Operation Open Bar against a scheme to hide assets and simulate operations in Minas Gerais.

The main targets are businesspeople in the transport and beverage sector, who receive visits from agents to execute three search and seizure warrants in Divinópolis (MG) and Cláudio (MG).

According to the PF, the businessmen would have moved approximately R$137 million during the period investigated.

In addition to the searches, the operation also blocks R$3.2 million from the bank accounts of those being investigated and seizes vehicles.

The PF's investigations revealed high financial movements and signs of concealment of assets and simulation of operations, through the accounts of the bars, hence the name of the operation “Open Bar”, which is a service offered for free consumption of drinks based on a payment fixed.

Those involved may be held liable for the crimes of tax evasion and money laundering, whose maximum penalties together can reach 15 years in prison.
