Six men were arrested after Dutch police discovered sea containers that had been converted into a makeshift prison and sound-proofed torture chamber complete with a dentists chair, tools, including pliers and scalpels, and handcuffs, a high-ranking officer announced Tuesday.
Authorities said police conducted the raid before the torture chamber could be used and alerted potential victims, who went into hiding.
The grisly discovery was made last month by officers investigating leads generated by data from encrypted phones used by criminals. The communications network was cracked recently by French police.
Detectives in Britain and the Netherlands have already arrested hundreds of suspects based on the encrypted messages.
Tuesdays announcement gave a chilling insight into the increasingly violent Dutch criminal underworld, which is involved in the large-scale production and trafficking of drugs.

I guess ‘it wasn’t safe.’
Indeed, no names mentioned is a sign in itself.
“Muslims, what else?”
My bil was a Major in the Army in Iraq the early years right after Saddam was toppled. Told me how the Sunni’s and Shia would torture each other if caught. The hatred between those two groups is insane.
Gouging out eyes was the mild stuff. I’m talking belt sander stuff.
Yep, nightmarish stuff. I remember reading about one of their favorites - drilling holes through your bones with a spade bit. Gives me the chills. Only Satan could dream up stuff like that. And now they want to bring it to the West.
That’s just weird.
Evil pure evil.
Anyone remember the big fire that swept several blocks of San Francisco back in the late 1970s or early 1980s?
It was in the news for a couple of days, then the story suddenly disappeared.
Rumor had it that the fire department found young men chained to the walls and “dungeons”, and had to call in more fire alarms as their people were trying to cut the captives free while also fighting the fire.
They sound like a Hostel bunch...
OMG, I lived in SF from 1970 until 1985 and have absolutely no memory of that at all. And I was young, out and about all day, every day, interacting with all kinds of people, was addicted to the news, even local news, knew all kinds of cops and saw them and spoke to them three or four times a week, but... I’m drawing a total blank on that one!
Scoot over, Biden!
Yep, I’ve seen it. Can’t forget that one!
Hundreds arrested, but not a single one had a publishable name.
