This programme contains some strong

language some scenes which some

viewers may find upsetting




Now, they're known as

the Pink Panthers.

They're a gang that steals jewels

from high-end stores all

over the world.

And one of their alleged members...

Armed with this Magnum revolver and

helped by an accomplice, he pounced.

We are talking about

an international criminal group

made up of more than 200 people.

They are organised

in independent cells

and they live in different countries.

These are all people

from the former Yugoslavia.

The core of the group

comes from Montenegro.

There is another substantial

group from Serbia.


One of the Panthers said

that every robbery that is lasting

more than 22 seconds is a great risk.


There's no alarm, no

security system, they can be good,

that cannot be broken.

Two hours, you're in another country

and you are safe.

That's what I like, you know.

I have a lot to tell you about

these robberies and there were many.

But the best job I've did

was in Spain.

We waited for a festival

that was about to take place

and we waited a long time.

It was some kind of

a religious thing, fiesta -

music, dancing.

Some kind of noise that they couldn't

hear us banging through the walls.

And now the action could begin.



My name is Novak, you know,

and people call us Pink Panthers.


And English people, they call us,

because of the film.

I read somewhere that one inspector,

I don't know where,

he said that we are terrorists

or something like that.

Modern terrorists,

but it's not true.

I mean, we are just taking something

unimportant for rich people,

for us - who doesn't have that,

you know?


We started with some houses,

you know,

some cars and something like that.

But jewelleries,

we find out, is much easier.

Jewellery's small, it's expensive,

it gets you more money.

We can be in China,

we can be in Singapore, Tokyo, Dubai.

Wherever they have rich stuff,

we can be there.



Here, we are really in the middle

of the old town of Geneva.

And there you have all the...all

the biggest jewelleries

with million and million

of stuff in the windows.

There you have Chatila...

This jewellery was attacked

by the Pinks in 2009.

That mean they enter by this door

and after that,

there were, in this road,

two scooter...

You say scooter in English?

..were waiting and

when they finished the robberies,

they jump on the scooter

and they leave the place.

Gubelin was attacked

one or two times by the Pinks.

Graff - Graff Geneva...

..De Grisogono, Chopard, Adler...

About the statistics or numbers,

approximately we have 500 cases

of robberies and burglaries

made by the Pinks.

Speaking about the value

of all the robberies,

approximately 300 millions

of US dollars.

If you take all their crimes


they are the best jewellery thieves

in the world.

I know, but like you say,

it's a Pink Panther!

And there are colleagues who give

me that one or two years ago.

They were involved in a case

we began here and they work on.

And they find this big Pink Panther

and they bring it here.

And it's a joke between

all the teams in Europe

working on the Pink Panthers.


Can you tell me, when did

you first hear of the Pink Panthers?

It was in 2000. At the beginning,

it was different.

For me, it was different

as the other teams

about the organisation -

it was more organised.
