Disruption of a criminal organization that imports and manufactures chemical products

Roles of circuits

A multi-member criminal organization that was dismantled by the financial police hid its tracks well. Everyone had their share. A former reality TV actress was among the 20 people arrested.

According to reports, the 27-year-old was the leader's right-hand man and had the role of distributing solvents.

However, speaking exclusively to Mega, he denies the allegations:

“I didn't do anything. I don't know why I'm here. I have been working there as a cashier for the past one month. “I have been detained unjustly,” he said.

The 27-year-old was arrested at the gas station where he had been working for the past one month in Gato Badicia. He says he has nothing to do with the criminal organization and has been falsely accused.

The 27-year-old lawyer said:

“The police were doing their job and the moment they decided to raid was a turning point for my young principal. There is literally nothing to connect her to the alleged criminal organization. He believes that he has been unjustly detained for four days and we are sure that we will give the necessary explanations to Ms. Anakritriya and he will be released.

The head of the criminal organization is said to be a 62-year-old man who, he said, studied medicine in Bulgaria. After medical studies, he became a deacon in an Orthodox monastery in Bulgaria, where he was a priest in London for 12 years when he was ordained.

His main partner is a Gaza-born 65-year-old expert in mixing chemical solvents.

Round Conversations… “Water”

Characteristic is the conversation among members of the Mega Reveal circuit about fuel adulteration calling ethyl alcohol “water”.

– Yes, but you don't put gasoline on it to see if it feminizes it.

– Feminizes, it's not feminine.

– Where did you put the gas? there;

-Yes definitely.

– Did you add water?

– Yes, of course, I always try it myself.

– Yes, but now it is not feminism here. They sent me pictures and things were not perfect. Now for the 15 cubic meter pesto, should I throw in half a cubic meter of reduced ethyl alcohol or less?

Guidelines for fuel adulteration

MEGA reveals a conversation between members of a multi-member spiral on the topic of fuel adulteration

-Luca Can you take the “Wizard” because I forgot to tell him something?

– Word.

– Is it okay to put 20 cubic meters and 10 cubic meters of petrol in this material?

– 20 cubic meters of this material that we are making now?

– 20 cubic meters and 10 cubic meters of petrol for filling.

– Now I ask him.

They used a warehouse in Asprobirgos as the main location for their operations, ending up with both quantities of ethyl alcohol and quantities of chemical solvents and blended fuels.
