Romania’s tax authority said on Thursday it is intensifying the fight against tax evasion by targeting music stars, moneylenders and company owners to investigate the origins of their revenues.

The head of Romania's National Fiscal Administration Agency (ANAF) Gelu Stefan Diaconu said in a statement on Thursday the tax authority has identified about 5,400 wealthy people to investigate in the first stage of the probe.

It would focus on people who bought property worth more than EUR 70,000 in recent years, cars priced over EUR 25,000, shareholders who had lent more than EUR 45,000 to their companies as well as individuals with more than EUR 34,000 in their bank accounts, according to

In the next stage ANAF would look into the difference between the declared income and the actual expenditures of about 300,000 people. This difference exceeds 10% and EUR 11,000 for more than 132,000 people.
