Justice. LFI deputy Carlos Martens Bilongo under investigation for laundering tax fraud

The deputy La France insoumise Carlos Martens Bilongo is targeted by an investigation for money laundering of tax evasion and abuse of social assets, announced this Thursday the parquet floor of Pontoise, confirming information from BFM TV.

According to the television channel, the elected representative of Val-d’Oise is suspected of having “hidden from the authorities a sum estimated at just under 200,000 euros”. He would also hold an undeclared account abroad.

A report from Tracfin at the origin of the procedure

It is the subject of an open procedure in mid-April following a report from Tracfin, Bercy’s financial intelligence unit. The Pontoise public prosecutor’s office did not wish to provide more details on the investigation, also opened on the grounds of failure to report to the High Authority for the Transparency of Public Life (HATVP).

The elected 32-year-old had made himself known to the general public reluctantly last November by being taken to task by the deputy Grégoire de Fournas in the hemicycle during a statement deemed racist.

“The French are fed up with tax evasion,” he tweeted.

On April 18, he tweeted again about tax evasion: “The French are fed up with tax evasion which costs 100 billion € per year! Either 2 million jobs at the average salary or the annual operation of 200 hospitals or the construction of 2,500 high schools”.
