(ANSA) - BELGRADE, MAR 14 - Europol said today that police and law enforcement authorities in the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia, with the assistance of Eurojust and Europol, had taken down an organized crime group responsible for the production and distribution of at least 4.7 tonnes of methamphetamine in Europe. During a joint operation that lasted from February 26 to March 2, 16 suspects were apprehended, and over 3.3 million tablets containing raw material for the drug's production were seized.

The perpetrators purchased the precursors through a Romanian company. The tablets manufactured in Romania were then divided into smaller batches and shipped to the Czech Republic and Slovakia, where they were distributed to clandestine laboratories. (ANSA).
