He is a cautious man who doesn’t like his real name broadcast. On the other side of the world, in a warehouse in the Congo, Dutchman Loek is aware of the three seizures and the recent arrests, but is told it’s business as usual and to prepare the ‘Australian package’. It is a worry, but the leak that led to the police raids in Belgium did not come from here, Loek thinks, glancing around at the heavily armed local militia-men patrolling the warehouse. There is too much money to make here for anyone to be acting as an informant for the Dutch or Belgian police, or anyone else.

His crimes culminated in a thirteen-year sentence for a violent armed robbery in Manchester in 1987, but he was let out after seven years for good behaviour. By that stage he had amassed thirty convictions for fraud and theft, as well as a firearms offence.

Jimmy would hold court in his local pubs.

There are not many hints in what the Dutch have told them, other than the police officer was somehow passing information to criminals to facilitate major international drug imports.
