Well-known #SkyECC & #Encrochat criminal Mink Kok extradited from Lebanon to the Netherlands


The Dutch criminal Mink Kok was extradited to the Netherlands on Saturday together with his son-in-law Najim Z. The Public Prosecution Service (OM) reported this on Monday. Both men were arrested in Lebanon in April on suspicion of involvement in drug trafficking.

The two were picked up by a defense aircraft and transferred to the Netherlands under supervision of the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee.
