PC Ross Ashcroft coordinated the operation.

He said: “The intention of this operation was to use proactive policing to prevent and disrupt travelling criminals from crossing our borders in order to commit crime.

“We were focusing on those criminals who have the biggest impact on our communities – those who commit serious crimes including burglary, theft of and theft from motor vehicles, and serious violent crimes.

“It was a very productive and successful night with a number arrests made and a lot of intelligence gathered.

“One of the best results we had was after a vehicle failed to stop for us in the Harlow area. We stopped the vehicle, and found drugs and a knuckleduster. We arrested the driver for failing to stop for police, possession of drugs, and possession of an offensive weapon.”

(LONDON) Isleworth Crown Court Report: Three men who plotted to use a removal firm as a front for their drug smuggling operation have been convicted following a National Crime Agency investigation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.23: However, they were unaware that they were the subjects of a covert investigation by the NCA, with officers tracing their movements and recording their conversations.

#AceDailyNews NCA Venetic Court Report: Officers break firm using #EncroChat after a trio were planning to use Trio removal firm as cover for lockdown drug smuggling enterprise: Mark Youell, 64, from Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, conspired along with Alfred Rumbold, aged 65, from Orpington, Kent, and removal driver Brian Wright, 73, from Folkestone, Kent, to import around 55 kilos of class A drugs across spring and summer 2020.

Trio in question facing forward.

COURT CASE NOTES:

During the period of the conspiracy, the trio had a series of clandestine meetings with a Merseyside-based organised crime group who wanted to import class A drugs utilising Rolls Royce-driving Wright’s legitimate removals company.

Covert listening devices deployed by the NCA picked up a conversation at a meeting at a café in Kent in July 2020 where they were heard discussing border controls. Youell told Rumbold and Wright:  “We’re gonna hit the jackpot” and that they were going to make “f***ing mega dough”.

The previous day Wright had returned from conducting a ‘dummy run’, taking his lorry out to The Netherlands. He made a series of notes around border checks and security on his phone as he returned.

The following week Wright made the run for real, collecting the drugs, which had been sealed inside fish tanks.

However, as part of a joint operation involving the NCA and Dutch law enforcement, the truck was raided just outside Utrecht. Wright, who was sleeping inside, was arrested. 

The drugs were seized from their hiding place, with Dutch police recovering 20.5 kilos of heroin, 32 kilos of cocaine and three kilos of MDMA. NCA experts say the haul would have had a UK street value of around £4.5 million.

At the same time NCA officers moved in on Youell and Rumbold, arresting them at their home addresses. Phones seized included a number of Encrochat and Sky ECC encrypted devices.

Encrochat messages attributed to Rumbold by the NCA as part of Operation Venetic – the UK law enforcement response to the takedown of the platform – showed that he was discussing with numerous criminals the potential to move drugs across Europe using Wright’s firm.

Both Youell and Rumbold denied drug importation charges, claiming they had only been seeking to smuggle alcohol, cigarettes, tobacco and cannabis.

Wright, following his extradition from the Netherlands, denied any knowledge of the drugs, claiming he was just transporting furniture.

Following a seven-week trial at Isleworth Crown Court, all three men were today (Thursday 19thNovember) found guilty of conspiring to import class A drugs. They will be sentenced on 26th November.

NCA Regional Head of Investigations Peter Stevens said:

“This conspiracy involved a significant amount of drugs which were destined for the streets of the UK, where they would have been distributed by criminal gangs involved in violence and exploitation.

“Through the NCA’s covert investigation into their activities we were able to prove the crime group stood to make huge profits for themselves.

“This investigation also shows the benefit of international co-operation when it comes to stopping drug supply, which is a priority for the NCA. I’m grateful for the support of our Dutch partners in securing these convictions.”

(LONDON) Chelmsford Crown Court Report: A London-based crime group who tried to smuggle 69 Albanian migrants into the UK on a dilapidated fishing vessel – and planned to bring in 50 more every week – have been convicted #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.20: The 30-metre converted trawler ‘Svanic’ was intercepted off the Norfolk coast on 17 November last year: The boat – built nearly 60 years ago and with a lifeboat for just 20 people – had set sail from the Ostend area of Belgium and was heading towards Great Yarmouth: It was escorted into Harwich international port in an operation involving the National Crime Agency, Border Force, HM Coastguard, Immigration Enforcement and Essex Police……

#AceDailyNews NCA Court Report: ‘Crime Group Convicted’ for people smuggling of Albanians into UK who plotted to bring hundreds of illegal migrants into the UK

Svanic fishing trawler

The NCA had been alerted to the vessel by the Maritime Analysis and Operations Centre in Lisbon:

MAOC received a report of suspicious activity from the Swedish authorities who had to assist the Svanic after it ran aground 15 days prior to picking up the migrants.

The vessel, which had been purchased in Latvia for around 20,000 euros in October 2020, was to run aground a second time before collecting the migrants in Belgium.

The three crew members – Igor Kosyi, aged 56, and Volodymyr Mykhailov, 49, both from Ukraine, and Alexsandrs Gulpe, 44, from Latvia – were arrested by the NCA on suspicion of facilitating illegal immigration. The 69 migrants were handed to Immigration Enforcement.

NCA investigators seized a laptop from the vessel, which enabled them to identify the UK-based gang which had orchestrated the attempt.

The computer had been given to the crew by Latvian national Sergejs Kuliss, 32, of Albert Basin Way, Newham, London. Phone evidence showed Kuliss was in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, on the night of the smuggling attempt, awaiting the arrival of the boat.

Throughout the day Kuliss had been in contact with fellow conspirators Lithuanian national Arturas Jusas, 35, living in Lambeth, and Israeli national Kfir Ivgi, 39, from Finchley.

Messages found on their phones showed the three men spent weeks discussing their plans to invest in a boat for the purpose of smuggling people, with Jusas claiming ‘from first trip we’re going to get the money back’.

Once the Svanic had been identified as a possible purchase Kuliss sent a sequence of photographs and videos of the boat to Jusas, which he forwarded to Ivgi. He replied: ‘Yes, yes, yes…I don’t care how it looks like, it’s good’, indicating he didn’t care about the condition of the vessel.

In one audio messages found on his phone following his arrest, Jusas boasted to Ivgi that he planned to ‘bring every week 50 people’. Other messages showed he was in contact with people on the ‘other side’ who wanted to move migrants to the UK.

The trio had also scoped out potential landing sites for the vessel, which had only 21 lifejackets on board, eventually settling on Great Yarmouth.

After the interception the gang shared online news reports about the incident with each other, with Ivgi messaging Jusas to say ‘clean the…phone’.

Jusas, Ivgi and Kuliss were arrested during a series of NCA raids in June this year after investigators were able to piece together their involvement in the plot.

They were charged alongside Kosyi, Mykhailov, and Gulpe with conspiring to facilitate illegal immigration.

Jusas pleaded guilty at Chelmsford Crown Court on 6 August, but following an eight-week week trial at the same court Ivgi, Kuliss, Gulpe and Kosyi were found guilty today (17 November) – exactly a year since the boat was intercepted.

Volodymyr Mykhailov was found not guilty.

Jusas and the four convicted will be sentenced at a later date.

David Fairclough, Deputy Director, Immigration Enforcement Criminal Investigation, said:

” There is no stronger example of how organised criminals are prepared to risk the lives of the people they smuggle for profit.

“The Svanic was in an appalling condition, and in no fit state to make the perilous journey from Belgium to the UK. Had it got into trouble, the consequences could have been fatal as there was only one lifeboat and 21 lifejackets.

“The dangers wouldn’t have crossed the minds of these men, whose sole motive was to line their pockets. They were planning to use this deathtrap over and over again.

“Cases like these strengthen our resolve to come down hard on the organised criminals behind people smuggling, who ply their trade on exploitation and misery.”

NCA Director of Investigations Nikki Holland said:

” These callous criminals had big plans to orchestrate a lucrative criminal operation at the expense of people’s safety using an unseaworthy vessel with only 20 lifejackets onboard.

“It is sickening that criminal gangs like this have no regard for the value of human life only seeing them as a way to make money. As recent tragic events show these journeys are unnecessary, perilous, and sadly sometimes fatal.

“Thanks to the culmination of efforts across the Home Office and NCA, we’ve slammed the breaks on this ruthless crime gang, and they will now receive the justice they deserve.”

#essex, #london, #murder, #police

(LONDON) Essex Police Ant-Slavery Day Report: Tens of thousands of people enter Essex every day using Stansted Airport, our ports, roads and rail network: Our transport hubs are vital for our day-to-day lives, but are also used by criminals to traffic people against their will #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.23: They may be threatened with violence, forced into debt they will never be able to pay back, or threatened with deportation by those exploiting them: Many of the victims are attempting to escape poverty and support their families.

#AceDailyNews reports on Essex Anti-Slavery Day: Modern slavery sees individuals trapped in jobs where they may be paid little or no money, are unable to move around freely because they have their documents taken from them and have no means of escape.

The two most common forms of modern slavery are forced labour – often working on farms or construction sites – and sexual exploitation, where men and women are coerced into prostitution.

In 2019, there were 10,000 potential victims of slavery identified in the UK.

To mark Anti-Slavery Day (Monday 18 October), officers have been working alongside partner agencies at Stansted Airport to alert travellers to the signs of modern slavery and human trafficking (MSHT) and tell them who to contact if they suspect it’s taking place.

This follows on from Project Aidant, which saw coordinated police work at Stansted, Harwich Port and in and around the M25 where automatic numberplate recognition was used to track vehicles suspected of involvement in MSHT. Lorry drivers were also leafletted at Birchanger Services.

Anti-Slavery Day Stansted Airport 18 Oct (2).jpg

Officers and Border Force at Stansted Airport on Anti-Slavery Day

Detective Constable Mark Ghosh is a field intelligence officer at Stansted and the force’s lead for MSHT.

Mark works alongside the Border Force, the Home Office, and the anti-slavery charities Justice and Care and A21 to safeguard victims.

Mark’s team regularly meet incoming flights to and speak to passengers who, either by their behaviour or the possessions they bring into the country, display some of the tell-tall signs of being controlled.

He said: “Modern slavery happens is a lot closer to home and more often than people may think. A common theme with sexual exploitation is that the victim has met a boyfriend or girlfriend online through Instagram or Snapchat, and has only spoken to them once on FaceTime.

“They have one conversation with this person that purports to be in love with them and suddenly they’ve ended up in the UK for the first time with a phone number on a piece of paper. That happens surprisingly often.

“With forced labour, we tend to find the recruitment is done through social media and the victims knows nothing about the pay or where they are meant to be staying.

“But potential victims will not engage with us unless we explain what is going on. We’re there to help them, not to question their immigration status.”

Mark quoted an example of a woman from Eastern Europe who chose not to engage at the airport but later told police she’d been trafficked.

Mark said: “A female came to our attention on an inbound flight. It was winter but she was wearing only a small amount of clothing. She also appeared confused and dazed.

“A male appeared next to her and it became immediately clear that he had control of her documents and was doing all the speaking for her.

“We engaged with her and she said she’d met the man online and was in love with him. They’d been travelling across Europe and had come to settle down in the UK.

Kai Ishaq - Aidant (3).jpg

PC Kai Ishaq with the information distributed at Harwich Port

“She had no phone, no credit or debit card, her family weren’t aware she’d travelled to the UK and she didn’t know where she was going. When Border Force searched her bag, she only had lingerie and stilettos.

“As a result, we took her back to Border Force, explained we were there to safeguard her and explain why we were concerned about her travelling with this man.”

The woman decided to continue her journey, but a follow-up call from Metropolitan Police officers was arranged at the address she headed to.

“They (the officers) visited the address several hours later,” Mark said. “The man was seen discarding drugs which gave them the power to enter the property. At that point she asked her help, and said she was being trafficked.

“Not only did she ask for help, she identified another brothel where there were other people working who were then safeguarded.”

It was later revealed the man, a Romanian, was trying to pay off his godson’s christening by trafficking the woman around Europe. He was convicted of controlling prostitution and trafficking, and deported.

If you have any information you can submit a report online at https://www.essex.police.uk or use the ‘Live Chat’ button to speak to an online operator between 7am-11pm.

You can also call us on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Sir David, 69, had been an MP since 1983 and was married with five children.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said he was “a great man, a great friend, and a great MP, killed while fulfilling his democratic role”.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak said: “The worst aspect of violence is its inhumanity. It steals joy from the world and can take from us that which we love the most.

“Today it took a father, a husband, and a respected colleague. All my thoughts and prayers are with Sir David’s loved ones.”

Anthony FitchArmed police were seen outside the church where Sir David met consituents

Sir David, who represented Southend West, was holding a constituency surgery – where voters can meet their MP and discuss concerns – at Belfairs Methodist Church in Eastwood Road North.

Essex Police said they received reports of a stabbing shortly after 12:05 BST and found a man injured. 

He was treated by emergency services but died at the scene.

Sir David is the second sitting MP to be killed in the last five years, following the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox in 2016. 

She was killed outside a library in Birstall, West Yorkshire where she was due to hold a constituency surgery.

Southend councillor John Lamb told the BBC that Sir David moved his surgeries to different locations around the constituency “to meet the people” and said the attack was “absolutely dreadful”.

“We’ve lost a very good, hard working constituency MP who worked for everyone,” he said.

“It didn’t matter who you were, it didn’t matter about your religion or your culture. If you had a problem he would work for you.”

MPs united in shock and sadness

Political differences have been set aside; MPs are united in expressing their shock, sadness and affection for a colleague and a friend.

Many of them will themselves have spent the day in church halls, supermarkets and high streets doing just what Sir David Amess had been: meeting their constituents face-to-face.

When you talk to MPs, they’ll often tell you that it’s a fundamental part of the job and one they really value. 

The death of Sir David Amess is both a personal tragedy – and a terrible reminder of the very real risks they all face.

Speaker of the House of Commons Sir Lindsay Hoyle said: “This is an incident that will send shockwaves across the parliamentary community and the whole country.” ……..He said he was shocked and deeply distressed by the killing of a “lovely man”, and said in the coming days they would need to examine MPs’ security.

Labour London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “deeply, deeply saddened” and described Sir David as “a great public servant”.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey said it was “a truly terrible day for British politics but most importantly of all our prayers are with all the people who loved David”.

Who was Sir David Amess?

A Conservative backbencher for nearly forty years, Sir David entered Parliament in 1983 as the MP for Basildon. 

He held the seat in 1992, but switched to nearby Southend West at the 1997 election. 

Raised as a Roman Catholic, he was known politically as a social conservative and as a prominent campaigner against abortion and on animal welfare issues.

(LONDON) NCA REPORT: Arrest of a man WANTED in connection with the smuggling of ILLEGAL migrants found dead in a lorry in Essex in October 2019 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.19: He is wanted by the Belgian authorities who allege he was a member of a people smuggling network moving migrants through Belgium and France and into the UK in the back of lorries:

ESSEX LORRY PARK DEATHS CASE: People smuggling suspect wanted in connection with Essex lorry deaths is arrested by the NCA: The Vietnamese national, who at this stage is not being named, was detained at a supermarket petrol station just of the A66 in Middlesbrough around 1pm this afternoon (17 June).

He is suspected of running safe houses in Brussels where the migrants stayed before their fatal journey. He is also accused of organising their onward transport in taxis to the collection point in France where they were stowed in the rear of the refrigerated lorry.

A Belgian investigating magistrate issued an arrest warrant in December, suspecting that he was now in the UK and had links to the Birmingham area.

However NCA investigators were able to track him down to a location in Middlesbrough where he was detained today, in an operation supported by the North East Regional Special Operations Unit (NERSOU).

He will now appear before Westminster Magistrates where extradition proceedings will begin.

The NCA’s Head of Organised Immigration Crime Operations, Miles Bonfield, said: This is another significant arrest in terms of the identifying those involved in the events which led to the tragic deaths of those 39 migrants: The individual detained today is suspected by the Belgian authorities of having played a key role in placing at least ten migrants inside that lorry: Working closely with partners in the UK, Europe and beyond we are determined to do all we can to get justice for the families of those who died, and disrupt and dismantle the cruel organised criminal networks involved in people smuggling.”

Earlier this year seven people were given jail terms totalling more than 92 years for their roles in the events which led to the Essex deaths, including four men who were found guilty of manslaughter. This followed an extensive investigation led by Essex Police and supported by the NCA.

Another Vietnamese national, a man known as Ngo Sy Tai, was arrested by the NCA in December 2020 – he is also wanted by the Belgian authorities for his role in smuggling the victims. He awaits extradition.

(ESSEX, U.K) Colchester Magistrates Court Report: A Polish lorry driver has been charged with drugs smuggling offences by National Crime Agency officers after cocaine worth £8.5 million was seized at the port of Harwich #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.22: The NCA began an investigation after border officers found the cocaine in taped packages, which had been placed in sacks on top of a load of washing machines and tumble dryers.

ESSEX: ‘Lorry driver charged following 107 kilo cocaine haul in Harwich: Lucas Wesolowski, 28, who lives in Poland, was arrested after the class A drugs were found in the trailer of an HGV which had arrived on a ferry from the Hook of Holland on Wednesday (12 May)’

Image showing class A drugs discovered in HGV.

After being questioned Wesolowski was charged with attempting to import a class A drug, and following an appearance at Colchester Magistrates today (13 May) he was remanded in custody until his next appearance at Ipswich Crown Court on 10 June.

NCA branch commander Lydia Bloomfield said: “ This was a large amount of cocaine, which would have been worth around £8.5 million if cut and sold on the streets of the UK: “ Losing it will be a big blow for the criminal network likely to be behind this attempted importation – profits which they will not be able to invest in other criminality: “ Working with law enforcement partners like Border Force, we are determined to disrupt the organised crime groups involved in drug supply and protect the public.”

(LONDON) Westminister Magistrates Court Report: A man arrested by the National Crime Agency over his alleged involvement in the smuggling of migrants found dead in a lorry in Essex has had his extradition ordered on Thursday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.10: The extradition follows the convictions of seven people in the UK for their roles in the events which led to the Essex deaths, including four men who were found guilty of manslaughter. The seven were given jail terms totalling more than 92 years in January 2021:

Court orders extradition of people smuggling suspect wanted in connection with Essex lorry deaths: ‘The man, known as Ngo Sy Tai, is wanted by Belgian prosecutors who allege he was a member of a criminal network involved in large scale organised people smuggling’

Ngo Sy Tai being arrested

Tai was tracked down by NCA officers to an address in the Redditch area of Worcestershire, where he was apprehended on the evening Tuesday 15 December on a European Arrest Warrant.

He is suspected of having been involved in transporting at least ten of the 39 found dead in Essex in October 2019, moving them from a safe house in Anderlecht in taxis to a location near the French/Belgian border before they were put onto the lorry.

After hearing the migrants had died, it is alleged Tai fled Belgium and initially went to Germany before moving to the UK.

Today (8 April) Westminster Magistrates Court approved his extradition to Belgium to face trial. He has seven days to appeal.

The NCA’s Head of Organised Immigration Crime Operations, Miles Bonfield, said: “ We are working closely with partners in the UK, Europe and beyond to disrupt and dismantle organise criminal networks involved in people smuggling: “ The arrest of Tai demonstrates that in action, and demonstrates our continued determination to get justice for the families of those who so tragically died in October 2019: “ People smuggling is a horrendous trade where those involved treat migrants as a commodity to be profited from and do not care about their safety or wellbeing. There can be no greater example of that than this case.”
