MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. Prosecutors together with customs authorities in Orenburg have thwarted an attempt to illegally transfer €149 million from Russia.

Prosecutors have established that the company Garant presented a false contract to transfer funds abroad. The contract was allegedly concluded with the London-based Trading and Freight Agency Co Ltd to supply more than €149 million worth of software disks. The illegal operation was discovered by prosecutors when they checked Garant's compliance with customs regulations, a source at the Russian Prosecutor-General’s office said.

The Orenburg customs authorities have opened a criminal case. A local court has issued a warrant to block accounts of Garant to prevent illegal financial operations.
