Six people are sentenced to long prison terms for drug smuggling

The league, consisting of five men and one woman, was revealed in May 2021 when customs dogs marked at an asphalt transport that came from German Travemünde to Norra hamnen in Malmö. Hash and marijuana were found in the truck, which is estimated to have a street value of SEK 16 million.

Two are also convicted of smuggling 40 kilos of cannabis via Malmö in March of the same year.

Two will also be expelled

The people are part of an international network with branches in Spain and the purpose was to distribute the drugs across the country. They have used phones with the encrypted messaging app Anom. The drug cartel has links to the international police operation “Trojan Shield”.

“The fact that the business was managed with the help of encrypted telephones shows – according to the district court – a special proposal unit and that the business was organized and extensive,” the district court writes in the judgment.

A 67-year-old man receives the harshest punishment. He is sentenced to eight years and ten months in prison. Two of the convicts will also be deported. All deny the crime.
