(ANSA) - Rome, July 29 - Six people have been cited for tax fraud in relation to a multi-million euros scam at a popular tourist holiday resort on the coast near Rome, it emerged on Tuesday. Investigators said the suspects redirected earnings at a 'country club' in the Castel Fusano State nature reserve to foreign bank accounts via companies in Bulgaria and Liechtenstein. In this way the club is believed to have evaded the Italian taxman to the tune of several million euros.
