The photo does not show the data center around which the trial revolved.

I have already written about this trial in an article:

The defendants had been charged with, among other things, forming a criminal organization and aiding and abetting more than 240,000 crimes.

This time, it was not the sellers of weapons and drugs who were on trial, but the operators of the servers through which these transactions were carried out.

The court found the defendants guilty of forming a criminal organization. They received prison sentences of up to five years. However, the court acquitted the defendants of aiding and abetting the more than 240,000 criminal acts.

Thanks for reading.
