“When you see hired assassins, kidnappings, what they are looking for is money; it is not a group of especially cruel or perverse subjects who seek to commit this type of crime because they like it, but rather it is a consequence of taking over territory, that the organization is enlarged. , that the competition be eliminated, to earn money,” he said.
“You have to attack these phenomena in order to control these organizations,” he added.
“There is a lack of adequate legislation. There are projects that are in Congress, such as the domain extension law, which has been in Congress for 3 or 4 years, which would be a very useful law to be able to seize, seize and allocate seized assets to criminal organizations for investigation. or to the compensation of the victims”, he concluded.
