Hanover - Criminals are networking more and more on digital platforms and are acting more and more digitally. ”In the medium term, Europol must be given executive powers.

"I've been calling for a kind of European FBIs to be set up for a long time."

The day before it became known that international investigators had managed to strike against crime in the so-called Darknet.

They arrested around 150 suspects - 47 in Germany alone.

More than 26 million euros were seized, as well as 234 kilograms of drugs and 45 firearms.

Some of the suspects have been classified as "high level targets" by Europol.

It was not the first action against the Darknet - in January 2021, investigators unearthed one of the world's largest illegal marketplaces on the Darknet, the “DarkMarket” platform.
