MEN LINKED TO CANADA-BASED ENCRYPTION SOFTWARE COMPANY INDICTED IN MAJOR US DRUG INVESTIGATION

On 13 March, the Toronto Star reported that a federal grand jury in San Diego has indicted 2 men linked to a Canadian company on racketeering and drug charges over allegations they helped import and distribute narcotics around the world through the sale of encrypted communications devices.  It is alleged that devices from Canada-based Sky Global are designed to prevent law enforcement from monitoring the communications between members of transnational criminal organisations involved in drug trafficking and money laundering; and Sky Global installs sophisticated encryption software in cellphones that allow users to communicate with each other in a closed network through encrypted servers in Canada and France.
