Thirteen arrested for alleged drug trafficking as part of international operation

Thirteen people have been apprehended for alleged drug trafficking in Hungary by investigators of the National Investigation Bureau's Rapid Response Unit (KR NNI) as part of an international operation which used an encrypted device company called Anom, developed and managed by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Europol and FBI reported that 800 criminals had been arrested in the biggest ever law enforcement operation against encrypted communication in 16 countries.

KR NNI said in a statement on Tuesday that in Hungary several tens of kilogrammes of drugs had been seized at 25 locations, in addition to vehicles, cash totalling more than 200 million forints (EUR 570,000) and cryptocurrencies.

KR NNI was a member in a working team set up by FBI and Europol for the operation, known as OTF Greenlight/Trojan Shield.
