In November of 2013, the bureau was notified about a possibly unlawful transfer of nearly 1 million litas (EUR 290,000) from a foreign company in Hungary to a Lithuanian firm. A report followed shortly about nearly 2 million litas lost by a Swedish company.
After a thorough analysis of the circumstances, officers of the Criminal Police Bureau identified a global group plundering money from large European business companies. Three Lithuanian and Israeli citizens were detained in the investigation.
The Israeli citizens are suspected of having formed a well-organized group with persons from Hong Kong, China and other countries to organize gaining of large funds and companies operating in Europe since March of 2013.
