Owner taken into custody for selling false organic food


Cagliari, June 7 - Finance police have arrested 16
people following an investigation into fake organic products
worth more than 135 million euros, produced by a Capoterra-based
company, authorities said Friday.
False certificates attesting to the quality of the
products, as well as fake invoices, were issued on products
aimed for Italian and European markets, authorities said.

Emilia Romagna and the Veneto regions to Lazio, Marche and
Puglia as well as on Sardinia.
Investigators say they have a total of 24 suspects facing
charges ranging from tax evasion to fraud.
Those arrested include company owner Benito Cremonini, 77,
of Imola and company director Michele Grossi, 38, of
Three people who were government-accredited inspectors face
charges of corruption.
