Cocaine ‘Super Cartel’ Taken Down

Europol conducted a series of raids known as “Operation Desert Light” across Spain, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands resulting in 49 arrests related to a cocaine “super cartel.” The cartel was responsible for about one-third of the cocaine trade across the European Union as well as money laundering. In September, Europol and Spanish police caught “one of Europe’s biggest money launderers” affiliated with the Kinahan Organised Crime Group centered in Dubai.

“The scale of cocaine importation into Europe under the suspects’ control and command was massive and over 30 tonnes of drugs were seized by law enforcement over the course of the investigations,” Europol stated.
