Dutch police crack ‘encrypted’ network

THE HAGUE, Netherlands, April 20, (AP): Dutch police and prosecutors took down an encrypted communications network Tuesday believed to have been used by criminals in the Netherlands and possibly overseas. Prosecutors said in a statement that they arrested a 36-year-old man in the eastern city of Nijmegen who is suspected of money laundering.

He is the owner of a company which allegedly “provided criminals with customized smartphones and accompanying communication services.” The company sold mobile phones for 1,500 euros ($1,700) that had been protected with legal encryption software called Pretty Good Privacy, or PGP, and could be used only for email, said cybercrime prosecutor Martijn Egberts
