Major Anti-Money Laundering Operation In Gibraltar

A major anti-money laundering operation involving over 60 officers commenced this morning at various locations around Gibraltar.

A number of residential premises were searched and several local persons were arrested on suspicion of money laundering offences.

A significant number of assets, including top range high value vehicles, vessels and other realisable possessions have been seized pursuant to a restraint order issued by the Supreme Court of Gibraltar.

The RGP was assisted by Gibraltar Defence Police search officers and HM Customs dog teams.

The operation which is ongoing, follows a protracted joint investigation with the Guardia Civil as part of a major anti- money laundering and drugs trafficking case in the Campo area.
