(LONDON) JUST IN: NCA REPORT: Arrest of three people Thursday evening allegedly involved in ‘Cross-Channel-People-Smuggling-Operation’ & supply of the small boats #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.09: Three people have been arrested following an investigation into the alleged supply of small boats to cross-Channel people smugglers:

NCA Report: ‘Three arrested over alleged supply of boats to cross-Channel people smugglers’

NCA and police jackets

Yesterday evening (8 April) a 33-year-old woman from the Hammersmith area of west London was arrested by the National Crime Agency at a location in Glasgow’

She was taken to Carlisle police station where she was questioned by NCA investigators on suspicion of attempting to facilitate illegal immigration. A property in Hammersmith was also searched. This morning (9 April) she was released under investigation.

Her arrest followed the detention of two UK-based suspects on Wednesday 7 April by officers of the Dutch Royal Marechaussee (KMar) in The Hague, Netherlands.

The pair, a 33-year-old from Hammersmith, and the other a 28-year-old man of no fixed abode, remain in custody and now face potential prosecution by the Dutch authorities. A number of deflated boats were also seized.

The arrests are all linked to an NCA investigation into the sourcing of rigid hull inflatable boats (RHIBs) in the UK and Europe, which are then transported to the Netherlands for storage.

The boats are allegedly then supplied to organised crime groups involved in smuggling people across the English Channel from northern France and Belgium.

NCA Regional Head of Investigation Jacque Beer said: “Smuggling people across the Channel in small boats is extremely hazardous and can have tragic consequences: “ The organised crime groups behind these attempts don’t care about safety or preservation of life, they just see migrants as a commodity to profit from and exploit: “ In our view those who supply them with boats knowing what they are going to be used for are equally as culpable in these criminal enterprises: “ This operation is a demonstration of our determination to disrupt and dismantle people smugglers’ business models at every step, and we are grateful for the assistance of the Dutch authorities.”

(LONDON) NCA REPORT: The suspected head of a crime network involved in smuggling migrants to the UK in the back of lorries has been extradited to Belgium to face trial #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.07: The man was subject to a European Arrest Warrant issued by a judge in Antwerp, Belgium, where he is alleged to have organised the transportation of significant numbers of people throughout 2018 and 2019:

European Arrest Warrant: Suspected head of people smuggling network extradited to Belgium: ‘The 30-year-old Iraqi national was tracked down and arrested by the National Crime Agency in January 2020. He was living in a property in Cippenham, Slough, at the time’

Man in handcuffs with two officers

Migrants would be moved from Brussels to motorway service lorry parks, where they would be loaded onto trucks bound for the UK. The group would often use refrigerated lorries.

The 30-year-old’s extradition was confirmed by the UK courts on 12 March 2021, after he withdrew an appeal against it. On 27 March he was returned to Belgium where he is now remanded in custody and awaiting trial.

NCA head of organised immigration crime operations, Miles Bonfield, said:

“NCA officers both in the UK and overseas have worked closely with our Belgian counterparts throughout this investigation.

“We are determined to do all we can to tackle criminal people smuggling networks impacting on the UK, no matter where they are.

“These networks are ruthless, treating migrants as a commodity to be profited from, and we have seen the tragic consequences that can come about when refrigerated lorries are used in such attempts.”

(LONDON) NCA REPORT: A Turkish lorry driver has been arrested on suspicion of people smuggling offences on a motorway slip road, on Sunday as part of an investigation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.23: Sixteen migrants were found concealed in the lorry’s trailer, sitting on pallets that had been laid across the load to accommodate them:

Lorry driver and 16 illegal migrants arrested in NCA operation targeting organised immigration crime: ‘The 36-year-old was detained after his vehicle was stopped at the M25’s junction with the A3 at around 3.30pm today (Sunday 21 March) ‘They were all arrested on suspicion of immigration offences and will now be dealt with by the immigration authorities. Amongst those held are Moroccan, Algerian and Pakistani nationals’

Pallets inside lorry

The M25 anti-clockwise exit slip road had to be closed for a short period of time while the lorry and migrants were dealt with by the NCA and police.

The driver is now being questioned by NCA investigators. He is suspected of planning to move the migrants out of the UK illegally via the Channel ports.

The operation was conducted with the support of the Metropolitan Police and Surrey Police.

NCA branch operations manager Chris Hill said: “ People smuggling networks move migrants in both directions across the border, threatening the security of both the UK and our European neighbours, but also putting lives at risk: “ Working with our partners across UK law enforcement we are determined to do all we can to disrupt those networks. Today’s operation is an example of that in action.”

(NORTH CAROLINA) Justice Dept Report: A man pleaded guilty today to smuggling drugs and other contraband into Caledonia Correctional Institution in exchange for bribe payments #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.20: According to court documents, Kenneth Farr, 47, of Rocky Mount, worked as a correctional officer at Caledonia Correctional Institution, a state prison in Halifax County. On at least six occasions in 2018, Farr used his position to smuggle contraband, including marijuana, tobacco, and what he believed to be oxycodone pills, to inmates in the prison. In exchange for smuggling the contraband, Farr received payments ranging from $300 to $500 in cash or via a mobile application and pocketed at least $2,200 from inmates and their associates:

Former Correctional Officer Pleads Guilty to Role in Bribery and Drug Smuggling Conspiracy: ‘Farr pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to use a facility in interstate commerce in furtherance of unlawful activity. He is scheduled to be sentenced in mid-June and faces a maximum of five years in prison. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors’

Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Special Agent in Charge Robert R. Wells of the FBI’s Charlotte Field Office made the announcement.

The FBI is investigating the case, with significant assistance from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.

Trial Attorneys Rebecca M. Schuman and Lauren E. Britsch of the Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section are prosecuting the case.

(LONDON) Court Report: A brazen money launderer who tried to smuggle almost £1.4 million cash out of the UK in his luggage has been jailed for more than two years #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.17: The National Crime Agency launched an investigation after Zdenek Kamaryt, 38, originally from Ceske Budejovice in the Czech Republic, was detained at Heathrow Airport on 8 November 2020 as he attempted to board a flight to Dubai:

Money launderer tried to leave Heathrow with suitcases stuffed full of cash: ‘A brazen money launderer who tried to smuggle almost £1.4 million cash out of the UK in his luggage has been jailed for more than two years’

NCA Published: 10 March 2021

He had checked in three suitcases for the flight – each was stuffed full of vacuum packed packages of cash totalling more than £1.3 million.

Another £50,000 was found in his carry-on hand luggage, including bundles of £50 notes stuffed inside socks.

He initially told Border Force officers he was a currency trader and intended to use the money to buy watches.

NCA investigators found that he had purchased the vacuum packaging himself at a high street hardware store just days before. The credit card used to buy the bags was in his possession at the time of his arrest.
They also found documentation detailing how much money was in each bag.

In interviews with the NCA he refused to say who had given him the money, or where he was due to take it.

Kamaryt was charged with money laundering offences, which he later admitted in court. On Tuesday 9 March a judge at Isleworth Crown Court sentenced him to 26 months in jail. The money will also be seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

NCA Heathrow operations manager Ian Truby said: “ This was a pretty brazen attempt to take money out of the country – Kamaryt’s suitcases contained very little else other than wads of cash: “ I’ve no doubt he knew this money was the profits of crime and would have ended up being reinvested in further criminal activity. He didn’t care about the impact: “ Cash is the lifeblood of organised crime. Working with partners like Border Force we are determined to do all we can to disrupt that flow of illicit finance and target the money launderers involved.”A 26-year-old woman arrested at Heathrow at the same time as Kamaryt was later released without further action.
