British police seized crypto with a record-breaking value of over £180M ($250M USD) in what is believed to be the biggest hauls ever, and in fact could be the most wide-reaching investigation internationally.
Second time British police seized crypto recently
In the second major haul in just a few short weeks, police confiscated crypto worth around £114M (around $158 USD) in late June 2021, with the Metropolitan Police releasing a statement saying that they have been investigating international money-laundering operations.
“Complex and wide-ranging,” was how Met Detective Constable Joe Ryan described the investigation, noting that it (the investigation) “will continue for months to come as we hone in on those at the centre of this suspected money laundering operation.”
One woman aged 39 has been confirmed to have been arrested in connection with the crypto money laundering network on 24 June, and has been questioned in relation to alleged criminal activities.
Normally, when investigating criminal activities relating to cryptocurrency, Police forces and often governments in general are often keen to paint Bitcoin and other digital assets as tools used by law-breakers, but in this case, the Met have at least acknowledged that “cash still remains king in the criminal world”, but naturally, we don’t seem many articles posted by the mainstream media about how awful banknotes are, and why you shouldn’t be using them because…muh…crime um’kay?
“Those linked to this money are clearly working hard to hide it…. highly trained officers and specialist units [are] working hard in this space to remain one step ahead of those using it for illicit gain.”Deputy Assistant Commissioner Graham McNulty, London Metropolitan Police
In the UK’s National Crime Agency annual National Strategic Assessment of Serious Organized Crime report, which was published in May 2021, the agency stated it was concerned by the “increasing adoption of cryptocurrencies and technological advances in this field, which make it easier to launder criminal money”.
And all whilst ironically ignoring the money laundering by global elites, financial institutions and some of the world’s top companies, but then again, from a police force with a history of covering up scandals which threaten the establishment order, it’s hardly surprising. Let us not forget the NCA, which operates in a similar fashion to the equally utterly corrupt FBI, has been criticised repeatedly, including its complicity in failing to take action against Banks fabricated evidence and even forged signatures on documents to force mortgage foreclosures.
It’s almost like the every time it’s reported that British Police seized crypto, the narrative is spun to ensure that more and more ordinary people continue to be turned off from crypto adoption, but of course, when the globalist narrative is the continued pushing of the WEF Great Reset agenda, it’s easy to understand why.
“Less than a month ago we successfully seized £114m in cryptocurrency. Our investigation since then has been complex and wide-ranging. We have worked hard to trace this money and identify the criminality it may be linked to.
“Today’s seizure is another significant landmark in this investigation which will continue for months to come as we home in on those at the centre of this suspected money-laundering operation.”Detective Constable Joe Ryan, London Metropolitan Police
The National Crime Agency, which took over from the beleaguered SOCO (Serious Organised Crime Agency) after it was closed in October 2013 is also responsible for the utterly bungled investigations into Modern Slavery (they are doing well, with one MP declaring that around 1/8th of the people in his constituency in Leicester East are effectively slaves) and the seems-a-lot-like-a-cover-up investigation into widespread Child rape gangs. So it might be that the NCA itself, just like it’s similar counterpart in the USA (The FBI) have a number of questions to answer when it comes to being the moral arbiters of truth and justice.
