The 58-year-old man, who lived for 40 years in Italy, tried his best to appear destitute, putting his penthouse apartment in his ex-wife's name, another in his son's name, and registered his BMW as belonging to a friend - all to try to avoid attention from tax authorities, they said Monday.
He also worked as an engineering consultant to large firms, earning a high salary that he tried to conceal, they added.
He stands accused of false billing as well as tax evasion.
