Europol has supported the Maltese Authorities in investigating an organised crime group suspected of having laundered over €20 million through Malta, writes Europol.

Other foreign jurisdictions were partners in the investigation. A total of 7 suspects of Libyan and Maltese origin were arrested across the Maltese islands on 29 November for their involvement in this money-laundering scheme. The suspects are believed to have laundered millions in illicit funds through five Maltese companies which the criminal group controlled.

The funds were for the most part sent to Turkey using both cash couriers and the informal hawala money transfer system. The investigation is ongoing to identify the origin of these ill-acquired funds, believed to be linked with tax evasion and other criminal offences..
