The High Tech Crime Team did the job against the unsophisticated Bredolab Botnet:

The Bredolab botnet has been busted. So said the High Tech Crime Team, part of the National Crime Squad in the Netherlands, on Monday.
According to Dutch authorities, “the botnet network used servers hired in the Netherlands from a reseller of LeaseWeb,” one of Europe’s largest hosting providers, which is working with investigators. All told, 143 servers were seized and disconnected. (informationweek.com)
