The FBI is said to have cracked the encrypted communications of suspected drug traffickers. On Monday, there were searches around the world, including in Germany.
It is probably one of the biggest blows against organized crime ever. In a coordinated effort, police units in 16 countries moved in Monday morning, storming homes, warehouses, garages and offices.
This happened among others in Australia, Canada, Estonia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Sweden, UK, the USA and also in Germany. In Hesse alone, around 60 properties were affected, and there were also raids in numerous other states such as North Rhine-Westphalia. German investigators speak of an unprecedented operation, with a large number of special police forces deployed.
Drugs, weapons, money laundering
According to research by NDR and WDR, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently gained access to the data of a provider of encrypted communications through which numerous criminal networks and gangs are said to have conducted drug transactions worldwide. Today's raids in Germany were planned under the strictest secrecy. Among other things, they are to be directed against suspected drug laboratories, cannabis plantations and cocaine storage sites.
However, the data related to Germany is also said to be about trafficking in weapons of war, weapons with silencers, money laundering and numerous other offenses. According to sources, the data set is supposed to be highly topical information.
