The legal fuel movement seminar was held last Wednesday, 8/11, with the participation of ETCO, Sindicom, Government and Judiciary authorities, including the Regional Superintendent of the Federal Police in SP, Disney Rosseti .
The Legal Fuel Movement aims to combat tax evaders known as hard-hitting debtors, who do not pay their taxes and use tax evasion as a business strategy, harming honest competition.
Edson Vismona, president of ETCO, participated in the panel dedicated to “Operation Rosa dos Ventos”, launched by the PF in the fight against fraud in the fuel sector. In August, Operation Rosa dos Ventos of the Federal Police, Revenue and Federal Public Ministry arrested at least 20 people for tax evasion in the area of fuels in the region of Campinas. The losses reached R $ 3 billion. The PF delegate, Paulo Víbrio, participated in the event and reinforced the importance of the work. Also participating in the panel were the Federal Police Delegates, Victor Hugo Rodrigues Alves Ferreira and Estela Beraquet Costa and the Federal Prosecutor Ricardo Perin Nardi.
The State Secretariat for Justice and Citizenship coordinates operations against fuel and pump fraud, a situation that occurs in all municipalities in the state, as highlighted by the secretary, Márcio Elias Rosa. In the Campinas region, from January to September, 17 gas stations were closed due to irregularities, during operations.
The fuel sector suffers greatly from tax evasion, caused by a minority of entrepreneurs malicious. Everyone loses: the market, society and especially you!
LIKE THE DAMNERS DO IT?

- One year salary for 100 thousand new police officers;
- The duplication of about 1.100 km of roads;
- The teaching of almost 2 million children.

And they know it. And they continue to operate on the margins of the law, harming the legal market, job-creating companies and the final consumer. We want, and we need, to change these laws that favor regular debtors and that harm tax collection, harming the market, society and the consumer.
