A Swedish man is suspected of involvement in a tax fraud in Belgium - and could be liable for up to 100 million euros.

He has now appointed a lawyer to defend his case in Belgium, reported DN on Sunday. It appears the man has been involved in similar affairs before and has been charged with fraud in the past. He is the prime suspect in a case dating back six years, which the police is still investigating.

The 40 year old claims he did put money aside to pay the outstanding tax, which is the total sum of taxes that should have been paid in a deal with Hugo van Praag, a famous Belgian white goods trading company.
