TALKING TO DEAF EARS

January 14, 2017

Former Head of Department at Danish tax (SKAT) Lisbeth Rømer tried to alert her superiors about the possibility of fraud for billions with the refunding of dividend tax, but her words seemingly made no impact.
In the Danish tv-documentary “The Billion Coup” Lisbeth Rømer states: ”All the time I was worried, because we paid all these billions out without knowing, whether it was correct. I did find that uncomfortable. Everywhere in the system where I had contacts, I said, that I thought it was a great problem, and that they had to do something”.
The reporter: ”After all the fraud starts while you are there. Did you do enough to avoid it?
“But I could only navigate inside the system saying, here is a gap. As we cannot know exactly who seeks to get what refunded. We don’t have any possibilities to do that.”
Lisbeth Rømer is currently in retirement. She stopped as Head of Department in 2013.
The Danish scandal about fraud with the refunding of dividend tax currently amounts to 12,3 billion DKK.
