AIAMP assembly highlights weaknesses in war on crime
On 28 November 2012, at the XX Assembly of the Ibero-American Association of Public Prosecutors (AIAMP), the attendants agreed that the regional fight against organized crime lacks a common vision. Costa Rican prosecutor Jorge Chavarría criticized the current approach that focuses on localized policies and ignores the greater map of Mexico, Colombia, and Central America, the driving force of organized crime in Latin America. According to United Nations figures, organized crime, specifically drug trafficking, generates US$320 billion a year for Latin America, with Central America acting as a bridge for 90 percent of narcotics shipped from South America to the United States.
