The documents were submitted to the FNTT officers on 15 December in Zurich. After assessing their significance, the Lithuanian Criminal Police Bureau and Europol were addressed requesting to ensure the security of the documents and officers carrying them.

Cooperating with Swiss, German and Polish colleagues, the FNTT officers were escorted all the way from Zurich to the Polish-Lithuanian border.
