Hitting cartel finance is working, says expert

The threats of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel against the government and its determinations to attack a police chief, such as the case of Omar García Harfuch, demonstrate that intelligence actions to attack, with precision shots, at the financial resources of criminal groups are working.

This was considered by the expert in National Security and Transitional Law, Sergio Arturo Ramírez Muñoz, noting that in no other administration have so many freezes been carried out, never have there been so many complaints against criminal groups and companies that They use money laundering as now with Santiago Nieto at the head of the Financial Intelligence Unit.

He refers to the video where the CJNG boasts its arsenal, armored trucks and hitmen, demonstrates the despair they have because the government is hitting them where it hurts the most, in their finances.

And, he added: "when Andrés Manuel said that the strategy to combat drug trafficking would change attacking him as an economic entity through the FIU, he was serious."

Ramírez Muños assures that this strategy is accompanied by social programs, that if they did not exist, many young people would be in the hands of crime, since the federal government maintains actions in search of a lasting State of Peace divided into three axes.

The first axis is social programs where young people have a future far from crime. This is the base on which all the pacification scaffolding is supported.

The second axis is the attack on criminal groups, “the intelligence actions to attack, with precision shots, the financial resources of criminal groups. In no other administration have there been so many freezes of accounts, never have there been so many complaints against criminal groups and the companies they use to launder money as now with Santiago Nieto ”.
In the third axis - he said - the President has been strengthening the foundations to take the final step towards pacification: the strengthening of the instances of law enforcement through the creation of the attorney general's office.

Likewise, the creation of the National Guard was a very important step; on the other hand, the Amnesty Law was brought forward due to the atypical situation in which the pandemic caused by Covid placed us, since it should be framed in a comprehensive transitional justice system in which the direct and indirect victims of the conflict are the center of decisions and their integral reparation, the main objective of the laws of the transitional justice system.

“In the transition period, the President had promised that by the year 2020 this system would be implemented, or at least we would already have the transitional justice special laws, however, the pandemic has made this year priorities that cannot be postponed.
