303M € in criminal assets confiscated last year in the Netherlands

The Dutch public prosecution department confiscated a total of 303 Million Euros of criminal assets in 2020. A third of the assets were cash money and around 8.2M€ in cryptocurrencies, a growth of around 700%

Additionally, the justice department issued sequestration orders for other 184M€ funds held abroad.

Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, criminals are finding it harder to use cash-intensive companies to dispose of their money, such as cafes and bars, markets and personal services like hairdressers and nail salons, and launderettes,” said spokeswoman Anita van Dis

In total, more than 10M€ was found hidden in cars trying to leave the Netherlands.
