Police Raids in Ryanair Bases in Germany

Jump to last reply

I have posted this in the Europe forum, but it may be interesting here, too:

Yesterday, the German tax authorities carried out several police raids in Ryanair bases in Cologne, Weeze/Niederrhein, Baden-Baden and Berlin Schönefeld. Also, the private homes of several pilots, flying for Ryanair, have been searched by the police. Police confiscated documents, personal computers and questioned the pilots.

The reason is that the tax authorities suspect that Ryanair practices evasion from social security contributions by involving dummy firms with bogus self employment contracts with the pilots.

Here is the press release of the Ryanair Pilot Group:

You may draw your own conclusions whether you should fly with Ryanair any more.
