    Fraude alimentaire : un #crime organisé ?

Le monde en face Fraude alimentaire : un crime organisé ?
  • Le monde en face Fraude alimentaire : un crime organisé ?

    Toute l'alimentation peut être falsifiée. Plus discrets qu'un cartel de drogue, plus insaisissables que des trafiquants d'armes, des criminels ont fait main basse sur la nourriture. Huile d'olive, poisson, viande, épices, aucun rayon n'échappe à leur juteux trafic. Un pactole estimé en Europe à 30 milliards d'euros enrichit chaque année une mafia d'un genre nouveau. Le crime organisé écoule des produits altérés dans les restaurants, les supermarchés, et tous les commerces de bouche de l'Union européenne. Leur secret consiste à remplacer un ingrédient par un autre, moins cher. Qui sont ces nouveaux trafiquants ? Quels sont leurs modes opératoires ?

A coded message sent by a brutal serial killer who has never been caught has been cracked more than 51 years after it was sent.

The male suspect, known as the Zodiac Killer, killed at least five people and attempted to kill at least two more in Northern California in 1968 and 1969. In the first three attacks, he targeted couples. The first victims were high school students who were parked in a car on their first date. In attacks on the other two couples, he managed to kill the women, but the men survived. A male San Francisco cab driver was the last known victim.

During the murder spree, the Zodiac Killer sent media outlets a series of letters taking credit for the slayings. To prove the authenticity of the claims, the letters included unreleased details and evidence from the crime scenes.

A potential hostage situation is reportedly taking place at the building in which game developer Ubisoft's Montreal office is housed.

Canadian media began reporting a major police operation outside the Ubisoft Montreal headquarters around 1:30pm Eastern time. Montreal police confirmed that there is an "ongoing police operation" at the intersection where Ubisoft Montreal sits, adding, "We ask people to avoid the area. The SVPM is currently validating information and more details will follow."

Live-streamed footage from French-language outlet LCN showed a group of people together on the roof deck of the building behind a makeshift barricade seemingly constructed of folding tables leaning against the access door. Developer Eric Pope confirmed in a Tweet that the individuals on the roof were indeed Ubisoft employees, saying, "This is insane. This is my team on the roof."
