The fiscal intelligence and investigation service accepted the request, since the investigation by the Tax authorities like to be more transparent and also other similar horecaondernemers the documentary and thought to yourself. The justice said the defendants in the case of the Japanese restaurants will tell. Also, Bloos agreed to, then they will have a detailed mediacontract signs.
