Europol says technology behind all serious crimes
Technology is now at the “root” of all serious criminality, says Europe’s police agency.
The returns generated by document fraud, money laundering and online trade in illegal goods helps to pay for other damaging crimes, said Europol, the BBC reported.
The wider use of technology by criminal gangs poses the “greatest challenge” to police forces, it said in a study, according to the BBC.
It revealed that Europol is currently tracking 5,000 separate international organised crime groups, the BBC added.
