The Brussels Court of Appeal generally confirmed, on Thursday, the judgment delivered in the first instance, in a major cannabis trafficking case, counting 15 defendants. They were found guilty of having been part of a criminal organization active in the trafficking of cannabis between Morocco and Belgium, during a criminal period from 2015 to 2019. Sentences of up to 12 years in prison and a global confiscation of several tens of millions of euros.

The investigation, carried out by the police services of several countries, had made it possible to seize a quantity of 600 kilos of drugs in France and the Netherlands, and 50 kilos in Brussels. Following the searches of several defendants in Anderlecht in June 2019, tens of additional kilos of drugs were seized. The criminal organization was actively involved in the import and export of cannabis resin from Morocco to Europe.

Electronic surveillance

The investigation reveals that several trafficking leaders were responsible for a specific territory to sell drugs: Belgium, Germany or Denmark. According to the wiretaps, the suspects were discussing, without code language, transportation, buying and selling prices, logistics or even accounting.

In the first instance, in February 2021, the Brussels Criminal Court had established that, during the crime period, the defendants had imported an average amount of 300 kilos of cannabis per month, for an estimated total of 14 tons. It had determined that the economic benefits derived from the crimes of illegal sale of narcotics amounted to almost 50 million euros.
