De Vastgoedfraude by Vasco van der Boon, Gerben van der Marel

By Vasco van der Boon, Gerben van der Marel

Op thirteen november 2007 doen zeshonderd rechercheurs en dertig officieren van justitie op ruim vijftig adressen in Nederland invallen. Een strafrechtelijk onderzoek legt een wijdvertakt fraudenetwerk aan de most sensible van het Nederlandse bedrijfsleven bloot. De omvangrijke fraude met vastgoed van bedrijven als Philips, ABN Amro en Rabobank die justitie in kaart brengt, is gepleegd onder de ogen van gemeentebesturen en bekende Nederlanders als Joop van den Ende, Hans Wiegel, Jan Hommen en John Fentener van Vlissingen.

De verdachte projectontwikkelaars, pensioenfondsdirecteuren en vastgoedhandelaren konden jarenlang, met hulp van accountants, bankiers en notarissen, ongestoord tientallen miljoenen bij hun bedrijven wegsluizen, zo is de verdenking. Het voormalige Bouwfonds en Philips Pensioenfonds claimen een kwart miljard euro schade te lijden.

In het najaar van 2009 begint het monsterproces. Sinds de spectaculaire inval van justitie in 2007 volgen de journalisten Vasco van der Boon en Gerben van der Marel voor Het Financieele Dagblad de ontwikkelingen in de zaak rond de grootste bedrijfsinbraak in Nederland ooit. De vastgoedfraude beschrijft voor het eerst de duistere kant van de Nederlandse vastgoedwereld, met zijn ons-kent-ons-cultuur, het gunnen van het grote geld en slapende toezichthouders.
