Encrochat: South east Londoners charged over murder & drugs

A total of 113 people in London have been charged with criminal offences by the Met Police Service under Operation Eternal, a worldwide operation against organised crime inspired by the infiltration of Encrochat, an impenetrable military grade crime chat network.

Nearly 200 people, including London’s ‘untouchables’, were arrested in a series of raids and investigations, and as of Monday, July 6, 34 people from south east London have been charged.

The 34, from across Greenwich, Lewisham, Bromley, Bexley, Dartford, Lambeth and Southwark, are accused of a number of crimes, including large numbers of class A drug suppliers, firearms offences, possessing the Proceeds of Crime (ACt – aka POCA), and murder.

We’ve compiled a full list of the south east Londoners involved below.

Encrochat is an encrypted, military-grade communications network used by 60,000 people worldwide, largely for criminal purposes, and has proved to be impenetrable until now.

Police in France and the Netherlands managed to access and infiltrate the network, sparking a massive joint operation involving the National Crime Agency, Europol, every police force in the UK and those across Europe.

The Met Police said the breakthrough had allowed them to identify and target previously “untouchable” kingpins, London’s longest-standing and most dangerous criminals, often leading flashy lifestyles “beyond the MPS’ reach”.

London officers used the data to disrupt murder plots, seize £13.4m in cash and arrest 146 people, part of the nearly 800 arrested across Europe.

The Met Police said it was their “most significant operation to date,” calling it a “game-changer” which will bring in results and arrests for months to come.
