The Public Prosecution Office of the Netherlands charged a suspect with laundering of more than 250,000 euros ($283,686) using cryptocurrency cards. The suspect is also accused of possession of hard and soft drugs.
The Dutch Fiscal Information and Investigation Service (FIOD) had identified the suspect during an investigation because of unusual transactions made using a cryptocurrency card. Additionally, the suspect owned 10 bank accounts, each with remarkable transactions. The suspect also used to convert bitcoins into euros for people who traded medicines on the dark web. Authorities also found hard and soft drugs in a storage box that the suspect rented.
Unfortunately, the suspect has refused to give the names and contact information of the people with whom he worked. The Public Prosecution Office has recommended a prison sentence of 20 months and a probation period of 2 years.
