Bei den Österreichern, der Banken Mafia im Balkan, kann schon lange nicht mehr überraschen. Schweighöfer ist ein besonders negatives Beispiel, wie NOVOMARTIC mit Johannes Hahn und anderen Gangstern, was an die Bodo Hombach Geschäfte erinnert.
Romanian prosecutors raid Austrian timber producer’s local factories

The prosecutors are investigating illegal timber transactions which damaged the state budget by EUR 25 million.

Prosecutors from the Directorate for Combatting Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) raided on Wednesday morning, May 30, Austrian group Schweighofer Holzindustrie’s factories in Radauti and Sebes.

The prosecutors are investigating illegal timber transactions which damaged the state budget by EUR 25 million, according to judicial sources quoted by local Mediafax.

A total of 23 searches were taking place on Wednesday morning in Alba, Suceava, Hunedoara, Brasov and Bihor counties as well as in Bucharest. Some of the searches also targeted the offices of the Forestry Directions and Forest Guard.

According to an official press release of the Romanian Police, managers of a local company have coordinated the acquisition of wood sourced from illegal logging activities, starting 2011. The same people were also involved in rigging timber auctions. The company was not named.

Schweighofer Holzindustrie has been accused of processing wood from illegal logging activities in the past but denied the allegations.

Die Österreicher Firma: Schweighöfer zerstört mit ihren Mafia Partnern in Rumänien die Wälder

 

Romanian President
Klaus Iohannis signed a law on Monday defining illegal logging and any
action “which endangers the country’s water, forests and lands” as a
national security threat, reported Balkan Insight.
timberThe
new law categorizes deforestation of surface areas greater than one
hectare as a national security threat, according to Radio Romania
International (RRI).
Over the past 20 years, Romania has lost 80
million cubic metres of wood worth an estimated € 5 billion (US$ 5.4
billion) to illegal logging, according to Balkan Insight.
The passing of the law is an apparent
response to demonstrations last spring, when Romanians took to the
streets to protest against illegal deforestation.
A study by Greenpeace
said Romanian forests were disappearing by three hectares per hour,
with numerous cases of illegal logging registered daily between
2000-2011.
Last year, OCCRP partner RISE Romania
revealed how Schweighofer, an Austrian-based timber processing firm,
bought massive volumes of timber from controversial Romanian logging
firms between 2013 and 2015.
RISE Romania reported that some of the
processing plants owned by the Austrian corporation who bought the logs
were connected to former Schweighofer directors, local politicians, or
businessmen with long criminal records.

 

Moreover Schweighofer, allegedly offered
loans to many of the local logging firms who took part in illegal
deforestation to expand their activities.
The Environment Investigation Agency (EIA)
also obtained hidden camera footage it alleged showed Schweighofer
officials agreeing to the possible purchase of illegal timber and
promising bonuses to the seller, reported Balkan Insight.
The most important wood supplier to
Schweighofer was state-owned Romsilva, whose president Adam Craciunescu
was indicted for corruption, according to RISE Romania’s investigation.
Schweighofer denied any wrongdoing, saying
it respects Romanian law and it will launch an internal investigation
into the allegations.
Romania has 65 percent of the virgin
forests in existence in Europe. Only 20 per cent of those forests are
included in national parks, however, and therefore protected by law,
according to Balkan Insight.
Romania’s forests were state-owned before
1990, but by the end of 2010, the state owned only 66.3 per cent. Public
ownership has since gone down further to 52.2 per cent.
Schweighofer, muss die Nummer auf dem Frachtbrief mit jener Nummer vergleichen,
die der Lieferant zuvor an Sumal gemeldet hat. Illegale Frachten fallen
sofort auf.

Der Käufer nimmt so die Rolle eines zusätzlichen
Kontrolleurs ein. Die Schweighofer’sche Praktik, wie der Bericht
beschreibt, scheint eine andere gewesen zu sein. Systematisch seien
Frachtbriefe fehlerhaft komplementiert worden.
Es bestehe der
begründete Verdacht, so der Report, dass insgesamt 27 Lieferanten im
geprüften Zeitraum mehr als 30.000 Kubikmeter illegal geschlägertes Holz
allein zum Schweighofer-Werk nach Sebeş gebracht hätten.

Darüber
hinaus  sollen diese 27 Betriebe ihrerseits 136.000 Kubikmeter illegal
geschlägertes Holz an Zwischenhändler verkauft haben, das wiederum bei
Schweighofer angekommen sei. Insgesamt mehr als 160.000 Kubikmeter Holz
stammten demnach hier aus illegalen Quellen. (Aktualisierung, 21.8.2015, Anm.)

Kritik

Greenpeace beschuldigt Schweighofer, an der Rodung von Urwäldern in Rumänien (Transsilvanien)
beteiligt zu sein. Die Organisation behauptet, dass Schweighofer dort
für 50 Prozent der Fällungen von Nadelhölzern verantwortlich ist, konnte
diese Vorwürfe jedoch nicht belegen. [37]
