Amsterdam Police Have Lost Track of Underworld Murders

Hanneke Ekelmans is the head of the Amsterdam Police Detective Department.  She said that initially the underworld killings in Amsterdam were fairly transparent:  there were two gangs, one controlled by Gwenette Martha, who has in the meantime been killed, and one led by Benaouf A. The gang war, known as the Mocro war, started in 2012 over 200 kg of cocaine which had disappeared. Since then, the drug market has splintered and is being run by various smaller gangs.  The recent murders can no longer be blamed on the 2 large gangs mentioned.  There are now dozens of smaller ones which makes the situation extremely difficult for the police to analyze, said Ekelmans.
