The Hungarian Customs and Finance Guard has recovered or accounted for 
some USD 1.5m stolen from a foreign financial institution in an attack 
by hackers as the money was laundered by a ring that included Hungarian 
citizens, the guard told MTI on Wednesday.

The money launderers transferred the money to bank accounts in Hungary 
and the accounts of off-shore companies. In the course of the 
investigation, they withdrew more than HUF 70m - or USD 500,000 - of the 
money in cash, the guard said.

The guard issued arrest warrants for three Hungarian citizens as a 
result of the investigation.
