The federal prosecutor’s office has opened a judicial investigation for “serious and organized tax fraud” against the Flemish visual artist Arne Quinze. The case revolves around the invoice for a work that was found during a house search of Luciano D’Onofrio, the former strongman of Standaard Liège. L’Echo reports.
According to The Brussels Times, the search had been carried out by the Central Office for the Repression of Corruption, OCRC, at the home of Lucien D'Onofrio, a businessman, former football star, and a former vice-president of Standard de Liège football club. D'Onofrio is the subject of a judicial investigation into the suspected laundering of €9.5 million.
During the search, investigators spotted a metal sculpture signed by Arne Quinze featuring prominently in D'Onofrio's garden. On taking a closer look at the work of art, police discovered that it had been invoiced from an offshore account, prompting the opening of the judicial investigation into Quinze.
