"Prosecutors said top league matches were sold from 2011-2013 to TV stations and officials used fictitious accounts to hide transactions."
Bucharest, April 8 - The former chairman of Romania's professional football league Dumitru Dragomir and some other officials have been detained on suspicion of avoiding tax in the sale of match rights to television stations.

A statement by anti-corruption prosecutors said Dragomir and six football officials were detained Monday as part of a criminal investigation into fiscal evasion and money laundering costing the state three million euros, reports Xinhua.

Dragomir was chairman of the league from 1996 to 2013.

Prosecutors said top league matches were sold from 2011-2013 to TV stations and officials used fictitious accounts to hide transactions.

In March, eight football officials were jailed on charges of tax evasion in transfers to foreign clubs.
