Dear clients,

On November 13, the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (Europol) announced that it had successfully cracked down on a criminal network engaged in online scams through call centers. The network was spread all around Europe.

According to Europol, the operation was carried out on January 11, 2023, following an investigation that began in June 2022 at the request of the German authorities. In conjunction with the national authorities of the other countries, Europol conducted raids in 22 different locations between Bulgaria, Cyprus, and Serbia. This resulted in the arrest of 15 individuals, 14 of whom were in Serbia and one in Germany.

In addition to the arrests, authorities also seized 3 physical wallets containing approximately $1 million in cryptocurrencies and about €50,000 in cash. They also seized 3 vehicles, electronic equipment, backups with important information, and other documents. The investigation is still ongoing as it is believed that the criminal network has more call centers than were raided.

Our office represent clients in this case as well.

The Jubilee Group case is significantly more complex than the criminal case described above, which is the reason for the prolonged investigation period. We anticipate that the Jubilee Ace criminal case will reach a satisfactory milestone through police investigation and evidence gathering followed up by the beginning of court proceedings this year. We assure you that every effort will be made to ensure that this outcome is achieved.

Kind Regards,

Zoran Miljakovic
