Prosecution presses charges against gang members linked to Colombian drug mafia
The gang was led by a Vietnamese national who moved to Budapest in the late 1980s, the municipal prosecutor’s office said in a statement on Wednesday.
Under a deal with Colombian drug dealers, the man contracted 19 Hungarians accomplices to launder drug money mainly linked to cocaine distribution in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Spain. The gains were then transferred to companies in Asia.
The prosecutor is seeking prison terms and fines for members of the gang as well as the expulsion of the Vietnamese defendant.
