Social dumping investigation leads to arrests in Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy | interior

The Federal Judicial Police (FGP) in Brussels has made eight arrests in Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy in a social dumping investigation. About eighty police officers carried out about thirty house searches at once, 26 inspectors of the Social Inspectorate cooperated.




The suspects appeared before the Belgian investigating judge who is leading the investigation, and one of them was placed under a European arrest warrant in Italy. 32 luxury cars were seized, as well as nearly 300,000 euros in cash. The labor inspectorate says it is a visit to the shipyard that has started the investigation.

The managers of a network of Belgian and foreign companies are suspected of bringing Romanian employees to Belgium. This could have happened through companies in different European countries. European and national legislation on hiring, social security and working conditions was mocked.

The FGP was assisted by Europol and Italian and Luxembourg police officers in the search. “This case shows that the Public Prosecution Office makes the fight against organized and dangerous social fraud in general, and against social dumping in particular, a priority,” the auditor said.
