VILNIUS - Aleksandras Sukovas, the head of Tez Tour, one of the largest tour operators in Lithuania, as well as VIP Viesosios Informacijos Partneriai, Aza Tours and several other companies are suspected of document forgery and tax evasion, the Lithuania's Verslo Zinios business daily writes.

Investigators from the Financial Crime Investigation Service's Vilnius regional division have disclosed a group of 13 persons who used over a dozen companies providing tourism services to avoid the taxation of revenue worth at least 2 million euros.

The FCIS said in its statement in early October that members of the group were suspected of fraud, property misappropriation, the submission of false data on revenue, profit or assets, fraudulent bookkeeping and forgery of accounting documents.

The group is suspected to have used inactive companies registered in Latvia for the money evasion scheme.
