Hundreds of policemen and Tax Authority officials raided the houses of a large number of alleged kingpins on Tuesday morning. They were not looking to make any arrests - although some of the targets were known to police - but to distribute tax forms that the suspected mobsters are to fill out in the coming days. The alleged criminals will be obligated to provide the Tax Authority with financial reports, capital declarations, income tax information and detailed descriptions of assets. Police hope the operation will reveal or shed light on any criminal undertakings and financial crimes committed by the suspects.
