Dolce and Gabbana in the case of tax fraud prone
Share |
  ROME (AFP) Fashion house duo Dolce & Gabbana will not stand trial for alleged tax fraud after an Italian preliminary hearing judge on Friday threw out the case against them, Italy's ANSA news agency said.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana had been accused of fraud of around one billion euros ($1.4 billion) as part of an enquiry into reports the company had failed to declare 840 million euros in revenues.

Judge Simone Luerti in Milan ruled there was not enough evidence to take the fashionista pair to trial, and closed the file on five other people who had been under investigation as well.

The reported allegation was that Dolce & Gabbana created a company in Luxembourg in 2004 and 2005 which was given control of the group's brands, thereby avoiding Italian taxes.

Dolce and Gabbana had denied the accusations. Their lawyer was not available for comment on Friday.
