Swedish government to return € 1.3 million worth of Bitcoin to drug dealers

Sweden’s Prosecutor Tove Kullberg has ordered the state to return €1.3 million worth of Bitcoin to three convicted drug dealers following a legal error that saw prosecutors value crime proceeds in Swedish Krona and not in cryptocurrency. The value of the seized Bitcoin has increased substantially, from roughly €130,000 to €1.5 million since the initial prosecution in 2019.
