Norway: Illegal money export

Four men and a woman are suspected of illegal export of over 35 million kroner (~5.5 million USD) from Norway to a bank account in Turkey.

Suspicions were raised last summer, when 6.6 million Kroner were sent to the account in Turkey. The police charged two Kurds and a Norwegian, suspected of receiving stolen goods.

The suspected heads in the cases were arrested somewhat later and have since been remanded in custody.

Police think the money came from the unlawful sale of a big amount of cigarettes. Police suspect that other trades are also connected to this case and are continuing to investigate. There are signs showing that the suspects were involved in other trades as well.
