"The medical establishment is suspected of having hidden revenue, and the non-accounted amount is estimated to stand at around 1 million euros," Dalia Pociene, a chief prosecutor from Klaipeda Regional Prosecutor's Office in western Lithuania, told a press conference on Thursday. "It’s a joint stock company Vaisingumo Klinika."

According to the prosecutor, some 50 searches have been carried out and nine people have been detained. A total of 12 people are named suspects in this case.

"Nine people have been detained. They remain detained. 12 people have the suspect status and are now being questioned, and other procedural action is ongoing," Pociene said.

The ongoing pre-trial investigation centers on suspected fraudulent book-keeping carried out by the company's executives and other persons.

According to the police, the company's premises in Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipeda, as well as detained persons' homes, cars etc. have been searched as part of the pre-trial investigation, and also some 500,000 euros in cash, accounting documents important for the investigation, other documents, computer media and other items have been seized.
