Fatjon Kurti, drug dealer by the username ‘Botarrota’ on the hacked platform EncroChat, jailed




Kurti, of Newport Court near Leicester Square in central London, orchestrated the deals on EncroChat using the handle ‘Botarrota’.


In a bid to avoid detection, he set up a front company called E&T Catering which was registered to his home but did not exist as a functioning catering business.


EncroChat was taken down in 2020 by an international law enforcement partnership.

The National Crime Agency led Operation Venetic as the UK’s response to the takedown and began investigating Kurti who is an Albanian national.


Though no real world identities are present on EncroChat, NCA officers proved Kurti was Botarrota and he admitted trafficking multiple kilos of cocaine, supplying cocaine and money laundering.

Location data for the Botarrota Encro phone showed it operating mainly around London. But the phone was in Weymouth and Bournemouth on 20 May 2020 and 2 June 2020 respectively.


Botarrota sent a message to another user saying he had ordered a Playstation - “it comes on Thursday" – and data showed Kurti began subscribing to Sony services at this time.


NCA officers waded through more than 16,000 messages on Kurti’s Encro phone to gather evidence.


That evidence showed he had a number of trusted associates - who were responsible for the holding and distribution of cocaine and the collection of cash payments - all of which he coordinated.


In EncroChat exchanges Kurti states his “business is cocaine” and the Venetic data showed him receiving many images of cocaine and bank notes which he forwarded to numerous contacts to discuss drugs deals.
