The officials in charge of the investigation into allegations of fraud, money laundering, fraudulent accounting and other illegal activities have found that the companies charged in the case make up 70 percent of Vilnius' taxi market.

Over 3 years, various searches of taxi company offices and the homes of their leaders and shareholders have lead to the seizure of the account books and other important documents of more than 20 companies. The case claims that the companies in the case avoided paying the government more than €2 million in mandatory taxes. The damage to the state budget done by the individuals in the case alone was more than €170,000.
