Old money: Belgium fines 92-year-old fraudster
18 Jan 2019

A 92-year-old woman who defrauded the Belgian tax authorities of millions of euros over many decades was spared jail on Wednesday but must pay over 4 million euros in fines and back taxes.

Branded by prosecutors as “maniacal” about managing her money, the woman named only as Betty W., won a reprieve from the Ghent appeal court from having to serve six months in prison.

However, a 16-month suspended sentence stands, as does a 600,000 euro (532,078 pounds) fine, according to newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws.
