European police arrest dozens of drug trafficking suspects
Authorities from across Europe have arrested dozens of suspected members of a drug trafficking network who smuggled narcotics in cars with secret compartments.
Probe began in 2019
The investigations into the organized crime group (OCG) were opened in 2019 by the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Florence with Eurojust and Europol facilitating co-operation between police authorities throughout Europe.
Spanish police commented at the time that a “Balkan cartel” consisting mostly of Albanian mafia groups was responsible, which it accused of monopolizing the shipment of drugs across Europe and Latin America.
