Wired – http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2015/03/chief-executive-of-a-canadian-tech-company-arrested-in-brasil-for-tax-evasion/ The CEO and a number of the people he’s working with have been charged with embezzlement and fraud, and the Brazilian authorities have raided his office, police said on Tuesday.
The executives have been arrested in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, according to local news reports.
The charges stem from an investigation by the federal prosecutors office in Brazil’s southern state of São Paulo, which led to the arrest of three other executives.
The officials who were arrested were identified as a director of a company called Aeon, which operates a cloud storage service, according a statement from the São Paolo state prosecutor’s office.
Aeon did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The Brazilian authorities are seeking to seize the assets of the executives and the companies they run, the statement said.
