Jos Leijdekkers is considered to be one of the key players in the large-scale trafficking, import and export of cocaine in the Netherlands and Belgium. He is also suspected of laundering the criminal proceeds of drugs trafficking. Furthermore, he is believed to be involved in serious cases of excessive violence, including the disappearance and death of Naima Jillal.
Jillal went missing on 20 October 2019 after she got into a car in Amsterdam. Incepted PGP messages have shown that Leijdekkers was involved in and most likely responsible for Jillal’s disappearance.
For a long time, there was no trace of Naima Jillal, until photos of a woman believed to be her were found on a phone seized in the Marengo investigation. The photos show that she was most likely tortured and is probably no longer alive.
During a large-scale investigation by the Central Criminal Investigations Division, criminal files were drawn up about Leijdekkers’ involvement in the import of large quantities of cocaine through the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. In one of the cases, threats of violence were made and actual violence was used.
The intercepted PGP messages obtained from Sky-ECC paint a picture of his suspected role within international cocaine trafficking. These messages also led to Leijdekkers being suspected of having laundered tens of millions of euros and hundreds of kilos of gold.
Leijdekkers, also known as ‘Bolle Jos’ (chubby Jos), has no fixed address in the Netherlands. It is believed that he has not lived in the Netherlands for quite some time now. Until recently, he was thought to be living in Turkey, but the investigation has not yet revealed his whereabouts.
