BELGRADE -- The Serbian police have arrested 18 suspects in a case revolving around manipulated text message sweepstakes, in an arrest operation dubbed "Graham".
The detained group is suspected of forming a criminal enterprise to commit fraud, money laundering and copyright infringement, and in the process defrauded the citizens who took part of some EUR 35 million.
The suspects are believed to have made illegal gains amounting to some EUR 15 million, Serbia's public broadcaster RTS has reported.
Those detained includes the organizers of the suspected criminal group: Rade Jovicic, owner of the Fonlider company, Radivoje Puonja, deputy director at Fonlider, and Duan Moraa, owner of TV Duga and TV Astra.
In March of 2010, the police arrested another group in a case known as "SMS Mafia, on suspicion that they manipulated the outcome of sweepstakes on TV Pink and RTS by using computer programs and cell phones.
