Operation Desert Light #Encrochat in Spain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UAE

 

A drug "super cartel" that controlled about a third of Europe's cocaine supply has been dismantled, police have announced.


Dubbed Operation Desert Light, 49 people were arrested across six European countries, the EU's police agency, Europol, said.


They included a British national, who is suspected of heading the operation.


More than 30 tonnes (30,000kg) of drugs were seized during the two-year-long investigation, Europol said.


Those arrested included six "high-value targets" - those most wanted by international police.


Among them was a British national who Spanish police said had been living in the Costa Del Sol.


Europol said the "drugpins" had formed a "prolific criminal network involved in large-scale drugs trafficking and money laundering."


It added that the scale of the drug operation was "massive".

It is the latest in a series of police efforts to hack encrypted phones used by organised crime networks to traffic drugs and launder money.


Cocaine imported from South America via the Netherlands was the main focus of the investigation, and most of the arrests were made there in 2021.


The others were made earlier this month, between 8-19 November, during coordinated raids across the other six countries, Europol said.


A video posted to the agency's YouTube page showed teams of investigators and sniffer dogs searching homes filled with luxury cars, although it is unclear if any assets were seized during the arrests.


The British man suspected of heading the "super cartel" had fled to Dubai after earlier avoiding arrest in Spain, the country's Guardia Civil said in a statement.


He allegedly continued to lead the cartel from the UAE.

Europol said a new agreement with UAE has enabled detectives to access intelligence, and arrest criminals once beyond reach.


An anonymous Europol source told the AFP news agency that another "big fish" Dutch suspect, with alleged links to high-profile Dutch crime boss Ridouan Taghi, was also detained.


Dutch prosecutors said they would request the extradition of the suspects from the UAE who now face large-scale drug trafficking and money laundering charges.

HOW TO PREVENT THE NEXT ENCROCHAT & SKY ECC HACKING ?


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 .

Cyber War Ultra Encrypted Communications.


This is an encrypted text message, that has been encrypted with an OTP cipher (quantum safe encryption- mathematically unbreakable) , on a DBV “ Air Gapped “ Offline SuperEncryption Machine. The Encrypted message is then exported from the offline device by visual means( no connections , not even physical) by scanning the QR code with an online device for then sending it safely online.


The QR code at is arrival, is scanned by the second DBV offline encryption machine , directly from the receiving online device. Afterwards , it’s deciphered safely offline. This form of super encrypted offline communications is safer than a face to face meeting .
