Braunschweig / Schwerin - The perpetrators would work with increasingly sophisticated methods and would not stop at national borders.

"We must resolutely counter this worrying trend with highly qualified specialist investigators and high-tech equipment," emphasized the minister.

An international group of investigators published the first information on the large-scale operation in several countries on Sunday.

In Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Ukraine and Cyprus, several objects were searched on Wednesday on suspicion of commercial and gang fraud and witnesses were heard.
