Lulzsec trial in Southwark. Apparently former leader of group has turned State’s Evidence in the USA
It has long struck me that everything else in the UK on which duty is ridiculously high is already smuggled, so oil must be…but how? We know about agricultural red diesel fraud, but biodiesel theft is a new one on me. Somewhere there is an organisation smuggling petrol…or at least evading duty on it. So how is it being done?
Now hang on here…”Tor”…”Bitcoin”…we need to know about these. Anonimisation software disguising identity and place together with an accepted international currency. Cybercrime moving on, but partially facilitated by US attempts to undermine a variety of governments…unanticpated consequences indeed.
Rowan’s blog. Always worth a read, but fine use of criminological theory to explain banker behaviour in the UK in this particular post.
IRA remnants, dissidents and traditional organised crime targetted in operation on both side sof border against agricultural diesel fraud. Same network dealing in Chinese tobacco and counterfeit vodka.
