Big action against money laundering

WILLEMSTAD--A so-called "Combined Team" of seventy law enforcement officials consisting of police officers, RST-detectives, a magistrate and a prosecutor executed no fewer than nine house searches in Curaçao on Monday.
The raids were held as part of the "Troya" probe into money laundering both on the island and abroad since 2004. The action was directed at persons suspected of engaging in such practices on a large scale, in addition to fraud, falsification of documents and illegal currency exchange activities.
During the action four suspects were arrested in various businesses and homes on the island, one in the Netherlands and one in the US. They are from the Netherlands, Venezuela and India.
The authorities reportedly seized NAf. 100,000 in foreign currency. They also placed liens on buildings, enterprises and bank papers worth a total of about NAf. 1 million. Documents, swipe machines and other objects that may be relevant to the investigation were confiscated as well.
The raids were conducted in various businesses and homes. They were performed simultaneously with other actions abroad on the basis of a request for legal assistance. The authorities did not disclose exactly were these raids were held.
