As a result of the Territorial Control Plan (PCT) and the exception regime, the country shows another face to visitors and its nationals, something that was reflected during the celebration of the 24th Central American and Caribbean Sports Games, during which security was also a protagonist.

The fight against gangs does not stop in the country and this week judicial authorities reported that nearly 200 gang members will be held in provisional prison for at least six months, while the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) investigates the crimes of disappearance of persons, extortion and femicides that they are accused of.
With this result, 41 cases of missing persons, more than 76 cases of extortion, four femicides and other crimes will be solved, according to the prosecutors’ report.
The criminals with gang profiles are being held in the Terrorism Confinement Center and other maximum security prisons awaiting trial and sentencing.
