Mades does not control traffic of endangered species

The Comptroller General of the Republic (CGR) presented a report and opinion on the budget execution of public institutions, corresponding to the year 2021. This report detected a total of 96 reports of indications of punishable acts.

One of the institutions with observations was the Ministry of the Environment (Mades), managed by Ariel Oviedo. Among the striking aspects, it is mentioned that the ministry did not coordinate actions with other government institutions to control international trade in wild flora and fauna species included in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

This lack of coordination of actions in a formal way, with other public institutions related to the trade of species included in CITES, caused an insufficient control of the wild species that enter and, above all, that leave the country, being able to contaminate the loads with elements not authorized for export.

The Mades did not coordinate actions with the central national offices of Interpol for the control of international trade in wild flora and fauna species included in CITES by not involving an institution specialized in international investigations of transnational crimes, including environmental crimes such as drug trafficking. wild species.
