Convicted of #Encrochat: Drug smugglers’ accountant facing jail after Christmas


THE accountant for a drug smuggling gang has been warned he faces the prospect of jail in the New Year.

Standing in the dock of Newry Crown Court, Miceal Fearon, from Eden Valley in Jonesborough, entered guilty pleas to two drug offences, admitting that he was concerned in supplying cocaine and cannabis in addition to an offence of entering an arrangement to acquire criminal property.

Fearon, who was initially arrested as part of the Europe wide Operation Venetic EncroChat investigation, was due to go on trial at the court when he admitted the crimes which were committed between October 7 2020 and February 20 2021.

Prosecuting counsel Laura Ievers asked for two further charges of possessing and converting criminal property, namely cash, to be left on the books.

Previous courts heard how 30-year-old Fearon was arrested in May last year on the basis of information which was harvested from previously encrypted phones.

When he first applied for bail, a detective outlined that Fearon was part of an "organised crime gang" involved in the distribution of drugs and he was in charge of "account keeping" for the group.

Routinely used by criminals trying to hide their activities from investigators, the Encrochat network was hacked by French detectives and sent gangs across Europe into a head spin as they sought to cover their tracks.

Users were given a code name and a handset which could only communicate with other specific handsets and in Fearon’s case, his codename was “micealsouth.”

In the encrypted messages obtained by the National Crime Agency, there was mention of the transferring of hundreds of thousands of pounds which were to be converted into euro and the use of slang terms for the supply of drugs.

Fearon was connected to the data through images retrieved from the network, including photographs of himself and the inside of his house.

“ If you need to communicate top classified information or you need to store secret data and be absolutely sure that no state-sponsored hackers, no foreign Governments , no intelligence agencies will be ever able to decipher the files, you need an Above Military Level Offline SuperEncryption System” 


Rule number 1 ☝🏼:

EncroChat evidences has been collected from the storage on the devices seized . A real military grade encryption device can’t be ever accessed by any digital forensic tools such as Cellebrite.

Rule number 2 :

Never 👎 use encryption services that are server based . Servers can be hacked easily and all data passing through them can be intercept. Servers also store the messages so that also this cloud based storage can be accessed and used as evidence.

Rule number 3:

Never , ⛔️ ever trust their party encryption services. The moment you trust a third party for generating your encryption keys, manage and store them for you , it’s game over . It’s like giving the keys of your bank vault to a total stranger .

Rule number 4 :

Stop 🛑 trusting cheap online encrypted phone suppliers! ⚠️ The garbage online are fake encrypted phones based on a $ 50 USD cheap Android cellphone bought in China and installed with a very low level security end to end encrypted messaging app.

Work like a pro, like intelligence agencies do ! Stop being scammed by online marketers selling you security illusions .
