Gangs Bribe Dutch Police

Criminal organizations make regular use of corrupt government officials and police agents. They also bribe employees of airports, harbors and transport companies, as well as contacts in the real estate sector. The main areas where this takes place is in drug smuggling and human trafficking. This results from an investigation of the Ministry of Security of Justice into organized criminality. The document analyzes 800 gangs. At least one out of five gangs uses bribes. For the smuggling of cocaine, heroin, cannabis and synthetic drugs, the criminals also bribe - besides officials - employees of commercial companies. Furthermore, environmental officials are being bribed in order to be able to dispose of illegal waste. The gangs often have seemingly normal companies which use notaries, lawyers and auditors.
