Operation "Botnia"/ They were caught with 100 kg of cocaine, the

The identities of some of the persons arrested during the operation carried out in Spain and Colombia for the destruction of an international criminal group of cocaine traffic, consisting of Albanian, Moroccan, Colombian and German citizens, have been revealed.

Operation "Botnia" led to the seizure of 100 kg of cocaine, 400 thousand dollars of crypto assets and the arrest of 12 people, 10 in Spain and 2 in Colombia, including an Albanian wanted in Albania for murder and in Germany, considered by Europol as one of the high value targets in international drug trafficking.

The Spanish media writes that the arrested Albanian is Kujtim Tanase. Tanase is a wanted person in Albania for murder and was awaiting extradition. His brother and his right-hand man were arrested together with him. According to the Spanish media, the criminal group requested financial assistance from the Albanian group to finance the introduction of 100 kilograms of cocaine from Ecuador into Spain.

Among the two arrested in Colombia is Bulent Aslanoglu, alias "The Godfather", a citizen with dual Swedish and German citizenship, whom the Scandinavian country's police consider to be the former leader of a gang called Södertälje and have classified him as HVT (acronym in English for "high value target" referring to the most wanted).

The Spanish Ministry of the Interior described this Thursday the operation as an "unprecedented blow to the structure of one of the most powerful international criminal organizations."

The investigation began a little over a year ago, at the beginning of 2023, when agents of the Drug and Organized Crime Unit (Udyco) of the National Police discovered meetings in Madrid and Malaga of suspected drug traffickers from different groups. Among them were three old acquaintances of the Spanish security forces.

One was Asnaloglu, who had already been arrested in 2013 in Malaga, where he has been living for some time, for his involvement in a quantity of 246 kilograms of cocaine seized in France, an act for which he had served a sentence in this country. The other two were the Atrach brothers, French of Moroccan origin, suspected of being leaders of a gang specialized in the reception and storage of drugs in Spain.

The investigation showed that the three allegedly organized the entry into Spain of large quantities of cocaine from Colombia, where Asnaloglu had direct contact with the producers of this drug.
