Unlike the Moroccans, Albanians, Assyrians...the Irish never really had a stake in local distribution in Antwerp, but - like a ton of other criminal organizations - Irish groups have definitely used the port of Antwerp to bring in huge amount of cocaine. Kinahan used to have quite a few money laundering points in Antwerp and it wouldn't surprise me if he (and maybe others) still does. There are Irish bars in Antwerp that change owners more frequently than many people change socks.

Thanks, the Georgian thieves-in-law seem to have spread out through Europe. Germany, France, Greece, Spain, Italy. They can travel visa-free to the EU’s Schengen zone.

An arrest team of the Antwerp police has arrested last week Eleftherios P. (77) because he is suspected of being involved in a weed plantation, reports the Antwerp Gazet. The “Ancient Greek” used to play a role in police files about cocaine smuggling.

Two of his sons were also arrested. P. is, according to the Gazet, seriously ill.

Eleftherios P. was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2014 for his involvement in the import of large quantities of cocaine through the port of Antwerp. At the time, P. was involved in the removal of cocaine from containers. His headquarters at that time were Bananas café on the edge of the Schipperskwartier.

Eleftherios...that man just doesn't know how to quit. Hardcore gangster through and through and an almost legendary character in the Antwerp underworld. I've heard rumors that his criminal organization is actually ran from Greece. When they were on top there were always new off-the-boat Greeks showing up at his café "Bananas".

Has nothing to do with Belgian organized crime?

Belgian cop + Traveller criminals + footage taken in Belgium. Where else do you suggest I put it? Irish travellers are a heavy criminal presence in Belgium and Netherlands. So relax, you'll live longer, Strax.

Wouldn't call them a heavy criminal presence in Belgium and the Netherlands these days. A few years ago Irish Travellers did show up in Belgium getting involved mainly in their trademark roofing scams. Not so much nowadays. Irish Travellers still show up whenever there's a major horse event going on though, but they aren't really a major bother there as far as I know.

Slovak and, to a lesser extent, Romanian and Bulgarian Roma gypsies are a bigger pain in the ass over here. Squatting, pickpocketing, petty drug dealing...
You're far more likely to experience nuisance from the Slovak Roma than from an Irish Traveller, a Dutch "woonwagenbewoner" (who are mostly pretty much alright in my experience) or even a Roma gypsy from former Yugoslavia.

Irish Travellers terrorized Dutch ´campings´ in 2017 in Brabant, Gelderland and Drenthe.

With the help of the mayors and the police, the public prosecutor's office in Limburg wants to ban the 'colors' of motorcycle clubs at events. "They are provocative and can disrupt public order," it sounds. But for motorcycle clubs, the embroidered license plates on the back of their leather jackets are sacred. "They have to keep going," says a prominent member of a notorious motorcycle club. "This is contrary to the Constitution," says a lawyer.
After various motorcycle clubs, such as the Hells Angels, are banned in the Netherlands, the Belgian court also seems to want to get rid of the so-called one-percenters.

How is the Belgian faction of the Cuntrera-Caruana family doing with the turmoil going on in Canada?
There have been several murders in the last few years mostly Belgian-Sicilians and Sicilian immigrants originally from CC turf in Agrigento.

Nowadays Brazil seems to be the main source of cocaine ending up in Antwerp.

https://ticotimes.net/2019/10/03/cocaine-from-brazil-costa-rica-on-the-rise-in-europe

Many ports in Brazil and Paraguay seem to be controlled by the Primeiro Comando da Capital, arguably the most powerful organized crime group in Brazil.

Colombia (from 50% to 13% in one year) itself is now less used as a source, but the major ports in Ecuador and Costa Rica (two other cocaine transporting hubs on the rise) seem to be controlled by Colombian groups. Due to heavy law enforcement actions Colombian OCG's have shifted much of their base of operation in the international cocaine trafficking from Colombia itself to neighboring countries. Clan del Golfo (formerly known as the Urabeños or Usuga clan) are still the top players in this.

Looks like criminal groups active in the Antwerp cocaine trade still conduct most of their business with Colombian and Brazilian OCG's.
Mexican groups largely focus on North America and seem less likely to be a partner of European groups. Same case for organized crime groups based in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Puerto Rico and El Salvador.
