Curtis Warren is a notorious criminal that had been on the UK’s radar for a long time. The 59-year-old had even been the most wanted criminal on Interpol’s list before his arrest. Warren had previously served a 12-yea sentence in the Netherlands after being caught with £125 million worth of drugs and weapons. He had then earned another 4 years in prison after kicking a fellow inmate to death.

Then again in 2009, Warren was found guilty of conspiracy to smuggle cannabis and had then been handed another 13-year prison sentence. This was the result of an organized take-down that was orchestrated against Warren who was considered to be the UK’s biggest drug dealer at one point. He had even appeared on the Sunday Times Rich List for bringing in an estimated £15 million weekly from his illicit activities.

Curtis Warren is actually set to be freed soon but the UK court system has placed strict conditions for his release. The most prominent of these is the ban from ever using Bitcoin. In addition to never being able to transact or invest in bitcoin, Warren is also banned from using the instant messaging app WhatsApp.

The conditions do not end there though. Warren will have to provide a day’s notice before he can board a friend’s car or van. He will also need to provide a week’s notice before he can travel abroad to Scotland.
