In the afternoon podcast This will be the news , we will update you on the most important news of today and discuss what happened earlier this Thursday.

EncroChat promised users that they would be able to chat one hundred percent safely without snoopers. Therefore, the communication network was widely used by criminals who openly talked about drug trafficking, liquidations and other crime cases.

But the promise could not fully live up to the chat service, because the police managed to crack the servers and watched for months. That has provided a wealth of valuable information, the police announced today.

In this podcast, reporter Joris Peters tells what consequences this will have.
