Under the coordination of the Special Action Group to Combat Organized Crime (Gaeco), the action aims to execute seventeen search and seizure warrants. The main line of investigation investigates suspicion of money laundering carried out by the owners of the aforementioned companies, reports g1.
The investigations are being carried out at the headquarters of 123 Milhas and Maxmilhas, as well as at addresses linked to the organizations’ members. The operation, which began in the morning, included the participation of specialized agents from Gaeco.
In December of the previous year, the Court of Justice of Minas Gerais (TJMG) ordered the immediate resumption of the judicial recovery process of 123 Milhas. The measure was adopted after the suspension of the process in September, requested by one of the creditors, Banco do Brasil.
The judge responsible for the case highlighted the importance of quickly resuming the process, emphasizing that any delay could harm the progress of the recovery, especially considering the dynamics of the tourist market. TJMG also highlighted that the company has a significant media impact, serving an annual average of five million customers.
CONTINUES AFTER RECOMMENDATIONS
Furthermore, data presented by the Court reveals a financial turnover of more than R$5 billion in the year 2022. In return, around 700,000 creditors deposited their travel aspirations with companies. The judicial recovery covers the companies 123 Viagens e Turismo Ltda., Art Viagens e Turismo Ltda. and Novum Investimentos Participações S/A.
