London - (Gotcha! News): Four high-ranking Russians have been stripped of diplomatic immunity following a major police bust of the EU's flagship gravy train.
Russia's Economic Embezzlement Ministry board representative Yelena Kotova was named today as one of the officials removed in the raid.
City of London cops stressed today that Kotova - Russian for 'Cat Woman' - bares (sic) no connection to the KGB espionage ring of disgraced ex-spookette Anna Chapman.
The EBDE was established in London in 1991 to weed out the growing menace of KGB organised crime syndicates taregtting Europe.
Claims that its official charter 'provides financial support to former communist countries in order for them to become market economies' have kept MI5, MI6, the Serious & Disorganised Crime Agency and the UK Fraud Squad in stitches for twenty years.
Names of Cat-Woman's three accomplices are expected to be released shortly.
