With the active support of Europol, the Slovak National Crime Agency (Národná Kriminálna Agentúra) has seized hundreds of illegal guns and ammunition, including decommissioned guns that had been restored to their full operation, as part of the Operational Taskforce LYNA.
The Slovak police found the weapons in a series of house searches in the region of Košice and charged six individuals for their involvement in this illegal gun-running operation. The criminal syndicate under investigation specialized in the conversion of so-called Flobert guns into lethal live-firing ones. They are believed to have trafficked over 1500 firearms onto the European criminal market.
These actions were carried out back in December 2019, but were kept secret until today due to operational reasons. The evidence seized during the course of this action is now being analyzed to identify further investigative leads across Europe.
