Father and son convicted for fraudulent Covid loans, sentenced to jail

It was about two companies in whose management the two are involved. According to the indictment, the accused from the canton of Lucerne applied for a loan of CHF 120,000 for one company from the Corona aid program and a loan of CHF 245,000 for the other, each with incorrect information on sales.

The criminal court found the 65-year-old father guilty of multiple fraud, forgery of documents and tax fraud, according to the verdict published on Thursday. The previously convicted accountant has to go to prison for 4 years and 2 months.

His 37-year-old son was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison, which included weapons and drug offenses in addition to economic crimes. He too had previously been convicted by a court. He also has to pay a fine of 30 daily rates of CHF 90 each.

Father and son have to pay the state a compensation claim of 50,000 francs and the private plaintiff, who guaranteed the Covid loans, compensation of 150,000 francs. The verdict is only available in the dispositif. It is not yet final.
