They criticized the lawyers

In the autumn, the Intelligence Unit released a report on criminal networks within organized in the region. Under the heading overall trends and phenomena, the police mention “Lawyers” as a point.

“Information from both and other encrypted chats indicates that the phenomenon of criminal lawyers abusing the trust they are given by is more widespread than previously known. It is well known that criminal networks use various forms of legal experts as facilitators, but for the law enforcement authorities it means a major threat that must be treated with extra care ”.
