Antinarcotics says there are no cartels in D.R.

Santo Domingo.- Despite the high amount of illicit substances seized in the Dominican Republic, according to the National Directorate for Drug Control (DNCD) in the country there are no drug trafficking cartels as such, but rather drug and micro-trafficking networks.

But what is the difference between one and the other? According to the institution, the cartels are criminal organizations that establish self-protection and collaboration agreements to carry out their criminal activities.

They are also known for being mafias that supposedly operate with greater force in Mexico and Colombia “imposing terror and deaths in their territories,” indicates the DNCD.

Who is to say there is not a cartel outside the RD managing the activities within the country?

The Dominican Arny is the only drug cartel allowed.

Your intelligence is flawed! The country imports, consumes, distributes and even manufactures illegal & additive drugs. The numbers speak for themselves and stop distracting the public with lies or spinning reality to put your own!
