Dominican Republic must ‘hit drug traffickers where it hurts most -their wallet’

Santo Domingo.- Antinarcotics agency (DNCD) president Julio César Souffront on Tuesday said Dominican Republic needs a review of some laws, others amended and more technology to effectively wage a war on drug trafficking.

He said new investigative techniques, a review of the Law on narcotics and on money laundering and other serious offenses are also needed as well as the Protocol on undercover agents.

Souffront said Law 72-02 on money laundering has to be amended to attack drug traffickers "where it hurts them most, at their source of wealth"

The official spoke on the topic as invited speaker in a conference hosted by the Dominican Republic Shippers Association, aimed at keeping that sector informed on measures and actions that should be reinforced to continue to support the authorities’ fight against drug trafficking.
