(The Local) Swedish police have confiscated servers in Sweden at the request of US authorities as part of a massive money laundering investigation of Costa Rica-based digital currency service Liberty Reserve.
"I'm the one who's authorized the raid," district prosecutor Ylva Johansson at the International Prosecution office confirmed for The Local.
"We don't have any information on the actual confiscated material as it's an American investigation, not a Swedish one."

The raid was carried out in the Stockholm area last Friday, resulting in the confiscation of a number of servers suspected of playing a role in moving billions of dollars in digital currency around the world.
