Economic blows against organized crime

Swedish tax authorities and the police maintain that their joint co-operation together with other authorities against organized crime over the last two years has lead to 230 court prosecutions and the confiscation of some 200 million U.S. dollars in illegal money that was to be laundered into the banking system.

This has come from frauds, embezzlement and other economic crimes.

Recently, 17 members of a motorcycle gang in the central province of Värmland were arrested after a police raid on their headquarters.
