El Salvador has lately become a key player in the drug smuggling industry that is being carried out by cartels both within and outside of the country. Due to the geographical location and relative ease at which smugglers can move within and through the country unhindered, El Salvador is becoming a popular hub for the biggest drug organizations in South America. As the drug trade becomes further ingrained in the fabric of the country, anyone attempting to do business in the country will need to work with professional security services in El Salvador to ensure their safety.
Just looking at recent news coming from the region is enough to understand why someone might need the assistance of security services in El Salvador. One recent report coming from an organization in the area tasked with watching over government actions in the region has suggested that the government of El Salvador has crossed many red lines recently in their fight against the criminal element. The report also states that if these lines continue to be crossed, the government will lose any hope of holding on to legitimate power as they, themselves, are committing crimes as well.
Also in recent news is the case of a major criminal kingpin known as Chepe Diablo. The crime boss has been involved in illicit activities for a very long time in the country, but has recently been caught and accused of laundering money through one of the region’s most influential petrol companies. If found guilty, Diablo’s case will serve as proof as to how deeply ingrained the crime syndicates are with local businesses and at the corporate level. Dark times surely lie ahead for the turbulent country.
