Finance ministry investigators found hundreds of thousands of euros in cash when they raided the property of former Jumbo chief executive in September, sources close to the investigation have told the Financieele Dagblad.
Frits van Eerd is a suspect in a criminal investigation into money laundering and tax fraud in the motor trade. The Fiod said at the time of the raids it had confiscated a large amount of cash.
The FD said Van Eerd’s lawyer had declined to answer questions about the cash, or to say if he had been able to explain it during police questioning. The public prosecution department also declined to answer the FD’s questions.
Van Eerd was was on nine people arrested in the September raids and has since stood down as head of the supermarket group.
The main suspect in the case is 58-year-old car trader Theo E. The investigation focuses on transactions in real estate and cars, unexplained large cash deposits and sponsorship contracts in motocross. E leads the motocross team sponsored by Jumbo.
