A question about the possible dual role in connection with the investigation of udbyttesagen now end in court.

the law Firm Bech-Bruun has filed a lawsuit against the ministry of Taxation.

This is a case where the disciplinary board has given fines to four Bech-Bruun lawyers for dobbeltroller in advokatundersøgelsen of the fraud of withholding tax.

It writes Berlingske.

In the decision of in the summer concluded the tribunal, furthermore, that the four lawyers to pay buyer's premium of 3.5 million dollars back to the ministry of finance. In addition penalized each of the four with a fine of 10,000 dkr.

Bech-Bruun has chosen to appeal the board's decision to the court.

The case, which the tribunal ruled, is actually two cases. If you want to appeal Advokatnævnets decision for the courts so to apply to the board for the courts, but only in respect of adfærdsdelen.

- If you also want to appeal salærdelen, then you must also bring the original complaint, therefore, of Taxation, of justice, says the managing partner of Bech-Bruun Simon Evers Hjelmborg to Berlingske.

The two cases are brought in the Copenhagen city Court, but Simon Evers Hjelmborg says to the newspaper that the man will try to get the cases to run in The high Court as the first instance, since he believes that they have a principled character.

the conflict of interest occurred because the other lawyers for the same firm had done work for clients that had received the refund of the withholding tax.

the Case was brought before the disciplinary board of the ministry of Taxation has grown, Morten Bødskov (S).

- the Decision confirms me in that Bech-Bruun's lawyers never should have bid on and been given the task of making advokatundersøgelsen, he said in a press release in connection with the decision in July.
