(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.”

#AceNewsReport – Apr.07: Officers and undercover detectives placed ads on websites commonly sought out by individuals seeking to engage in illegal sex acts: HSI Phoenix and the Mesa Police Department routinely join forces to conduct enforcement actions in a continuous effort to reduce the demand that fuels child and human sex trafficking from our community:

‘Operation Leather Mitt targeted the demand for child sex crimes and human trafficking in the area’

‘The suspects solicited and/or brokered deals for various sex acts with children, and were subsequently arrested and charged with crimes ranging from money laundering and luring to attempted sex conduct with a minor and child sex trafficking’

The suspects arrested in this operation ranged in age from 21 to 56 years. Their names and charges are as follows:

  • Jonathan Techur — child sex trafficking; attempted sex conduct with a minor; money laundering

Both are staffed around the clock by investigators. From outside the U.S. and Canada, callers should dial 802-872-6199. Hearing impaired users can call TTY 802-872-6196.

HSI is a directorate and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries.

(WASHINGTON) ICE/HSI & Canada Border Services (CBSA) Report: Forming a cross-border-task-force to prevent illegal movement of gun smuggling & people trafficking #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.03: A U.S.-Canada task force dedicated to disrupting and dismantling the illegal movement of firearms, ammunition, and explosive weapons across the U.S.-Canadian border was announced today by U.S. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) in another step forward to address gun smuggling and trafficking:

US, Canada establish cross-border task force to disrupt gun smuggling and trafficking: ‘The new task force will ensure that law enforcement partners on both sides of the border benefit from shared intelligence and information so that they can detect and intercept the illegal movement of firearms at the border, while ensuring the legal movement of goods and services remains uninterrupted’

The U.S. and Canada partnering agencies include HSI, CBSA, the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Public Safety Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), and various U.S. and Canadian police forces.

“As the primary federal law enforcement agency responsible for investigating international smuggling operations, we have full confidence in our ability to identify and prosecute criminal networks and individuals attempting to break these laws,” said HSI Ottawa Attaché Michael Buckley. “Through our strong partnership with Canada and our partnering law enforcement agencies, we will work to prevent the illegal export weapons and ensure they do not end up on the streets where they can be used to commit acts of violence.”

HSI is the primary federal law enforcement agency responsible for investigating international smuggling operations and enforcing U.S. export laws. The investigative strategy includes the identification and prosecution of criminal networks and individuals responsible for the acquisition and movement of firearms and other dangerous weapons from the United States, as well as the seizure and forfeiture of money and valuable property derived from or used to facilitate this criminal activity.

HSI is a directorate of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s mission is to investigate, disrupt and dismantle terrorist, transnational and other criminal organizations that threaten or seek to exploit the customs and immigration laws of the United States.

HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 Special Agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

(WASHINGTON) Justice Dept Report: A Texas man was sentenced to 20 months in prison for trafficking protected species and ordered to pay a $2,000 fine and be placed on supervised release for a period of two years after completing his prison term #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.26: Carrillo was the middleman between several Mexico-based suppliers of wildlife and their U.S.-based customers. Carrillo’s role as middleman was to pick up wildlife from a co-conspirator in Juarez, Mexico, and transport (smuggle) that wildlife in his car into the United States at an El Paso border crossing. His status as a U.S. citizen with a Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection card made his transits easy. Once in the United States, Carrillo would ship the wildlife via FedEx or U.S. Postal Service to the U.S.-based customers. On many occasions, animals died during transport.

Texas Man Sentenced for Trafficking in Wildlife: ‘Alejandro Carrillo, 62, of El Paso, pleaded guilty on July 9, 2020, to a two-count information charging him with one count of conspiracy to traffic wildlife and one count of smuggling. Carrillo admitted to being part of a conspiracy to smuggle wildlife from the Mexico into the United States via El Paso since May 2016’

The sentencing was announced by Acting Assistant Attorney General Jean Williams of the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division and Edward Grace, Assistant Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Office of Law Enforcement.

“Trafficking in protected species in violation of U.S. and international law is harmful to the animals and their native habitats,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Jean E. Williams of the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division. “The Justice Department remains determined to work with our law enforcement partners to ensure that these endangered animals are protected.”

“Wildlife trafficking is decimating much of the world’s natural resources,” said the USFWS Office of Law Enforcement Assistant Director Edward Grace. “It is paramount to deter and dismantle wildlife traffickers in order to ensure the sustainability of our natural resources, protect against zoonotic diseases from spreading, and so that future generations will be able to benefit from the world’s diverse species of wildlife and plants.”

Between April 2015 and December 2019, Carrillo illegally transported wildlife across the U.S.-Mexico border with a market value of over $3,500,000. Carrillo received a “crossing fee” for each border crossing, the amount of which depended on the number of animals transported, the size of the packages, and, in some cases, the level of risk of being detected by the authorities. In that time period, Carrillo was paid more than $198,000 to transport wildlife across the U.S.-Mexico border:

On Sept. 22, 2016, Carrillo picked up several reptiles from a supplier in Juarez, including a Central American river turtle (Dermatemys mawaii), which is a Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)-protected and endangered species, and transported them across the U.S.-Mexico border to his residence in El Paso. He then re-packaged the animals and sent them to a buyer in Oklahoma. The total value of the shipment was $1,650. Carrillo did not have a CITES import permit for any of the smuggled animals, nor were any permits issued in the name of any of the suppliers. In addition, Carrillo did not submit the necessary import wildlife declaration form to the USFWS:

The USFWS Office of Law Enforcement and the Environment and Natural Resources Division’s Environmental Crimes Section investigated the case.

Trial Attorneys Mary Dee Carraway and Gary Donner of the Environmental Crimes Section prosecuted the case.

(CEDAR RAPIDS, IA & Des Moines, IA US Marshalls Report: Operation Homecoming Locates ‘Missing Iowa Children’ during search that began in October 2020: #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.26: Since October 2020, the U.S. Marshals in Iowa have been partnering with federal, state and local agencies in a joint operation dubbed Operation Homecoming, focused on recovering vulnerable, critically missing children across the state, and as of March 23, U.S. Marshals have located 21 juveniles and have directly recovered seven children.

U.S. Marshals Service Leads Operation to Find Missing Iowa Children: ‘Both the northern and southern districts of Iowa worked with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation’s Missing Persons Clearinghouse to look for and recover the children, who were all between the ages of 4 and 17, and are some of the most at-risk and challenging recovery cases in the area, based on indications of high-risk factors such as exposure to narcotics, child exploitation, physical or sexual abuse, and medical or mental health conditions’

‘America’s First Federal Law Enforcement Agency ‘

Operation Homecoming led to Marshals locating missing Iowa children in nine different states across the U.S., including Arizona, Nebraska, Minnesota, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana. 

The operation also resulted in the arrests of two individuals, the seizure of illegal narcotics, the seizure of two firearms, and four independent human trafficking investigations, which have been referred to the appropriate investigative agencies for further valuation.

U.S. Marshals in Iowa are still looking for Fredrick Workman, 15, last seen in Des Moines in August 2013, and are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to his location. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact NCMEC at 1-800-843-5678 or visit their Cyber Tipline at www.missingkids.org.

The U.S. Marshals primary responsibility to protect the federal judiciary is followed closely by a variety of priority missions like apprehending violent fugitives, investigating noncompliant sex offenders, and the sale of forfeited assets. Added to these responsibilities in 2015 was the mission to investigate/locate/recover critically missing juveniles. In 2015, with the signing of the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, the USMS was granted discretionary authority to support law enforcement requests to assist in locating and recovering missing children. Since the passage of the JVTA in 2015, the USMS has contributed to the recovery of more than 1,750 missing children.

“The goal of our involvement with missing child cases is not only to safely recover Iowa’s missing children, but also to aid our local and state partners who work these cases daily,” said Deputy U.S. Marshal Scott Cannon, Missing Child Investigations Coordinator for the Southern District of Iowa. “The Marshals Service is uniquely suited to provide assistance based on our expertise as the premier agency in tracking fugitives. We can use some of the same skill sets in recovering missing children as we use during fugitive investigations.”

Central Iowa man charged in harboring runaway

Just before Christmas 2020, a missing central Iowa teen was found by deputy U.S. marshals in the home of an adult male in Ames. The man was arrested for harboring a juvenile runaway and implicated in sex trafficking. A second man was later charged based on the results of the USMS investigation and recovery efforts.

Iowa Missing child recovered in Arizona after family’s relentless legal battle

U.S. Marshals in Iowa and Arizona worked to recover a child who had been missing since he was taken by a noncustodial family member in 2017. Now 4, this child had been relocated and hidden from law enforcement for years. The child’s legal guardian spent significant time and resources attempting to locate this child, to no avail. With the assistance of the U.S. Marshals and their partnership with state and local Authorities, the child was recovered and returned to their legal guardian in Iowa, bringing to close a case that has haunted local investigators and family members for years. 

Exploited teens located and returned to Iowa

In January 2021, U.S. Marshals in Illinois recovered a missing 14-year-old from central Iowa after investigators discovered ads featuring the juvenile involved in sex trafficking. The juvenile was recovered at a motel in the act of being trafficked. In 2020, another missing 17-year-old was taken from central Iowa and subjected to human trafficking in Mississippi and Tennessee. Marshals tracked her location to a home in Mississippi, where she was recovered and brought back to Iowa.

“For these kids on the run, life on the streets can be extremely dangerous and unforgiving” said Deputy Marshal Christopher Siemens, Missing Child Unit Liaison in the Northern District of Iowa. “Often they have no financial resources to sustain themselves, resulting in the selling of sex acts as a means to survive.” 

“This operation is the first missing child operation by the U.S. Marshals Service in Iowa,” said U.S Marshal for the Northern District of Iowa Doug Strike. “Our message to missing children and their families remains, and to echo Director Washington’s vision for this mission, the U.S. Marshals here in Iowa will never stop looking for you.”

“The key to success, for these projects, involves a joint effort by public safety, working as ONE-entity with ONE-goal: Keeping our children safe through the apprehension of these critical offenders,” said U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Iowa Ted Kamatchus.

Nationwide, more than 50 local task forces are dedicated to violent crime reduction by locating and apprehending wanted criminals. These task forces also serve as investigation hubs for missing and exploited juveniles throughout the country. During Operation Homecoming, the Southern Iowa Fugitive Task Force and the Northern Iowa Fugitive Task Force fulfilled these roles, investigating missing juvenile cases alongside the following agencies: The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Office of the Inspector General, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, The Iowa Department of Public Safety, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Iowa Department of Human Services, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the Howard County Sheriff’s Office, the Webster County Sheriff’s Office, the Cedar Rapids Police Department, the Ames Police Department, the Waterloo Police Department, the Des Moines Police Department, the Dubuque Police Department, the North Liberty Police Department, the Cresco Police Department, and the Fort Dodge Police Department.

(LONDON) MET Modern Slavery & Explotation United (MSCE) Report: Operation Snoop officers have arrested 8-people in early morning raids across Hertfordshire #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.17: As part of a strategic operation police have conducted seven warrants at addresses across the capital and in Hertfordshire: Warrants resulted in eight arrests on the morning of Tuesday, 16 March, six males and two females, with individuals being arrested on suspicion of crimes including controlling prostitution for gain contrary to Section 53 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and arranging or facilitating travel of another person with a view to exploitation contrary to Sections 2(1) and 5(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015:

Operation Snoop: Eight arrested in morning raids in modern slavery operation: The warrants were part of an investigation lead by the Met’s Modern Slavery and Child Exploitation Unit [MSCE] into the trafficking of Chinese women in to the UK for the purpose of sexual exploitation. The warrants, in Hackney, Hounslow, Bexleyheath, Watford and Kingston, follow a comprehensive year-long investigation in to a network of criminals and the operation they were running.

It is believed that some of the addresses entered by police were operating as brothels.

Officers who entered the addresses were accompanied by officers from the MSCE, interpreters and Mandarin speaking officers. 

Vulnerable people at the addresses are now receiving support from specialist officers.

Police will now work to seize evidence to support offences of human trafficking and controlling prostitution, including proceeds of crime, mobile phones, computers, travel documents, criminal assets, cash, passports, ledgers, and any material linked to sex adverts.

Acting Detective Inspector Nick Bland of the Central Specialist Crime Unit said: “This morning’s operation, despite being the culmination of a lengthy investigation, is only the first step in bringing the people arrested to face the consequences for their actions: “ Young women who are trafficked in to this country for sexual exploitation are often sold a dream in terms of what their life in the UK may look like, that dream is quickly unraveled upon their arrival to the country, where they will often be forced to live in abject poverty and be at the beck and call of their traffickers. In some cases it is impossible for these women to escape to their home countries as their travel documents are confiscated: “ We know that crimes such as these are amongst some the most damaging to victims. They will no doubt have suffered untold pain and distress during their time in this country under the influence of these individuals.

My officers will now commence the seizure and examination of evidence from the properties in order build a case against these individuals for submission to the Criminal Prosecution Service: The Met continues to make every effort to reduce high impact crime such as this and the fear of it, and the warrant executed this morning has no doubt contributed to this mission.”

(DALLAS,Tx.) ICE REPORT: The North Texas Trafficking Task Force (NTTTF) led by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Dallas reported the recovery of 31 children previously reported missing from the North Texas area #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.05: “ While this joint operation lasted approximately 30 days, HSI Dallas will continue working relentlessly to identify & recover missing children who become vulnerable to human traffickers across the North Texas region,” said HSI Dallas Special Agent in Charge Ryan L. Spradlin. “Our continued collaboration with our local, state and federal law-enforcement partners and non-governmental organizations is vital to combatting this global epidemic.”

North Texas Trafficking Task Force recovers 31 missing children: ‘In early February, the HSI led NTTTF supported by the United States Marshals Service (USMS) for the Northern District of Texas (NDTX) conducted a joint law-enforcement operation to locate the missing children reported through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database and law enforcement partners’

During the month-long operation, NTTTF analysts and special agents discovered that six of the missing children were considered high risk of being sex trafficked, five were runaways located away from their primary residence. The remaining 20 children were returned home or to their juvenile facility of record.

The NTTTF is an HSI Dallas and Northern District of Texas Attorney’s Office-led task force, created to combat human trafficking and rescue trafficking victims. The NTTTF, with assistance from the HSI Dallas Victim Coordinator and DFW area non-government organizations (NGO), assists in rescuing trafficking victims, ensuring their safety by using a victim-centered approach that focuses on the victim’s wellbeing, health and delivery of social services.

The NTTTF provided substantial support and assistance through intelligence analysis and investigative activity, leading to the recovery of all the minors reported missing.

Multiple organizations were comprised of the multi-agency operation to include: The Arlington Police Department, Colleyville Police Department, Dallas Police Department, Dallas County District Attorney’s Office, Dallas County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Worth Police Department, Grand Prairie Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is one of the top five locations across the nation for criminal arrests for Human Trafficking, validating the priority and urgency in locating the missing children.

HSI Dallas and the NTTTF partners assisted in providing social services to the recovered children, placing special emphasis on those most vulnerable to sex trafficking.

HSI is the principal investigative arm of DHS and a vital U.S. asset in combatting transnational crime and threats. One of HSI’s top priorities is to protect the public from crimes of victimization, and HSI’s human trafficking and child exploitation investigations programs are central components of this mission set. HSI is recognized as a global leader in these investigative disciplines, and is committed to utilizing its vast authorities, international footprint and strong government and non-government partnerships to identify and rescue child victims, identify and apprehend offenders, prevent human trafficking, prevent transnational child sexual abuse, and help make the internet a safer place for children.

` Afghanistan will require 10 years of help with their `Infrastructure ‘ to Combat Drug Trafficking – FDCS ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – March 25 – Head of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FDCS) has stressed the need for helping Afghanistan’s comprehensive development within the upcoming ten years to make the fight with drug trafficking effective.

“To implement this ideology or doctrine on security through development, we need to organize Afghanistan’s comprehensive development in the period from 2015 to 2025 on the basis of alternative development programs of new generation, including accelerated industrialization and construction of basic infrastructures,” Viktor Ivanov told a meeting of the expert community on Tuesday in the run-up to a ministerial meeting of heads of anti-drug agencies.

“This approach seems the only productive way to resolve the priority task by the world community – to eliminate the global scale drug producing centre “in the heart of Asia,” he said.

UN Rights Expert Joins Call for Concerted Global Action to Fight Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking petition hand in

A United Nations independent expert, along with two other key human rights mechanisms today stressed the importance of partnerships as the “backbone” of global efforts to tackle the scourge of human trafficking.

“Partnership is the backbone for effective coordinated efforts to implement a human-rights based approach while addressing this multi-faceted phenomenon,” <“http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=13869&LangID=E“>said  the human rights experts from the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the Organization for Co-operation and Security in Europe (OSCE), on the occasion of the European Anti-Trafficking Day.

“Cooperation between origin, transit and destination countries, but also with regional and international mechanisms, as well as private stakeholders such as multi-national corporations and civil society organizations, is essential for comprehensive responses to trafficking in persons.”

The UN Special Rapporteur on trafficking in persons, especially women and children, Joy Ezeilo, underlined that trafficking is a grave violation of human rights which leads to further abuses.

“The rights of victims should be the beating heart driving all efforts towards eradicating this phenomenon which leads thousands of women, girls, men and boys in situation of profound exploitation and violence,” Ms. Ezeilo said. “The victims, whose rights are stolen, have to be protected, assisted, provided remedies, and re-integrated.”

Trafficking of women, children and men

Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry which has trapped some 21 million men, women and children in forced labour. According to 2005 estimates released by the International Labour Organization (ILO), profits generated in the sex industry alone are as high as $32 billion a year. Furthermore, nearly one-third of all victims of human trafficking officially detected around the world between 2007 and 2010 were children, according to a report released in December 2012 by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) citing data from 132 countries.

The President of the Council of Europe Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA), Nicolas Le Coz, emphasized that countries have a responsibility under international and European law to provide protection to victims to ensure their moral and physical integrity and prevent re-victimization, including by prosecuting and punishing the traffickers.

“Given the worrying proportions human trafficking has taken, there is a need to move from a national security model to a human rights-based approach in order to better identify and assist victims of trafficking who are often undocumented migrants,” Mr. Le Coz said.

For the OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, Maria Grazia Giammarinaro, “the realization of a victim’s right to effective remedies is at the core of the human rights-based approach as redress and compensation are the key stepping stones on the path to full recovery and social inclusion without fear or stigma.”

The three international expert mechanisms stressed that “a universal human rights-based approach is paramount to end human trafficking in the world today.”
