Fake invoices crackdown

CITY police have detained 26 suspects for manufacturing and selling fake flight invoices.

About 8.4 million sets of fake flight invoices were seized in crackdowns at 29 sites across the country, police said yesterday.

Police said the suspects were detained in five cities - Shanghai, Tianjin, Langfang in the north Hebei Province, Kunming in the southwest Yunnan Province and Changsha in the central Hunan Province - after investigators had spent a month in cracking the manufacturing and selling chain.

The invoices are widely used by companies and organizations to claim tax back.

Fake flight invoices are usually provided in unauthorized travel and ticket agencies as they are unable to issue authorized certificates, police said.

Huang Wei, an officer with the Economic Crime Investigation Department, said the suspects, who had criminal records, came to police attention when they gathered in the city two months ago selling fake flight invoices.

During the investigation, police targeted a suspect surnamed Han who owned a printing factory in Tianjin and worked as a supplier of fake invoices.

On August 10, police raided Han's factory and wholesalers in the five cities simultaneously.

"When our officers raided Han's factory, he and the employees were printing the invoices and all the machines were on," Huang said.

About 6.4 million sets of invoices were seized on site.

"The other two million were intercepted on their way to Kunming and Changsha," Huang added.
