In November 2020, customs in the Port of Gothenburg will receive an inspection mission. They are to investigate a shipment from Casablanca. Three containers of marble slabs are passed through and finally the customs find vacuum-packed hash in what looks like marble slabs. In total, it is 1.2 tonnes and it will be the largest drug seizure in Swedish history.
FBI was behind encrypted app
The tip has reached customs after the US FBI allowed the enforcement of an encrypted app. Anom has been marketed as a secure communications service, made by criminals – for criminals. When the FBI discovers that many users write in Swedish, the Swedish police are called in.
Over 12,000 phones connected to 300 networks in 100 countries have used Anom. In June 2021, a global crackdown of 9,000 police officers will take place. In Sweden, 65 people were arrested in the first day alone.
