The attorneys general of Central America nations held a meeting in Costa Rica this week to assess their country’s fight against organized crime.
The meeting of the Network of Prosecutors against Organized Crime (REFCO) was this week held in the capital, San Jose, and is attended also by representatives of each country, the anti-Mafia prosecutor in Italy, Octtavio Sferlazza.
The REFCO was created in 2011 by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime and funded by Canada.
Costa Rica has taken a lead role in the fight against organized crime, recognizing that much of the organized crime doesn’t originate here in Costa Rica but that the country is a transit point for various criminal organizations.
Costa Rica has expanded its efforts in recent years to quell criminal activities through regional and international cooperation efforts.
