The group's activities could have deprived Lithuania of some €8 million of value added tax revenue in 2014-2015 alone, according to estimates.

The group of six people have been led by a Latvian national and operated in ten countries: Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Estonia, Israel, Denmark, Slovakia, Great Britain, Cyprus, and Romania, according to the Financial Crime Investigation Service (FNTT).

The group has been jointly investigated by the Kaunas division of FNTT, Kaunas prosecutors, Lithuania's State Tax Inspectorate and Latvia's financial police.
