Eurojust helps tackle massive fraud of EUR 645 million with medicinal cannabis plants

Eurojust has assisted national authorities across Europe in tackling a massive fraud involving fake investments in cannabis plants for medicinal use. Two linked criminal organisations that advertised the scheme online and laundered the profits of approximately EUR 645 million, have been dismantled. In a coordinated action, nine suspects have been arrested. Eurojust supported the case in setting up a joint investigation team.
