According to a press release from the Attorney General’s Office, the network is linked to a criminal organization to which 16 people were arrested in March last year for bringing 700 packages of cocaine hydrochloride from Colombia.

As part of the operation, raids were carried out in the National District and in the provinces of Santiago and Santo Domingo.

The information specifies that the authorities have identified several members of the powerful organized crime organization, directly linked to money laundering, drug trafficking and illegal possession and carrying of firearms.

The operation, coordinated by the General Directorate of Prosecution, involves the Specialized Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prosecutor’s Office, the San Cristobal Prosecutor’s Office, the Joint Information and Coordination Center of the DNCD and the Financial Intelligence Directorate of the anti-narcotics agency.
