Narco beginning to take over functions of the state–according to Felipe Calderon
The president of Peru reveals that his Mexican counterpart pointed out that organized crime is going to compete in areas like tax collection
(Cartagena, Colombia) The president of Peru, Ollanta Humala, revealed that Mexican President Felipe Calderon said that the drug cartels have replaced in certain places, state level functions, as in the case of tax collection.
At a press conference at the Convention Center after a private meeting with Calderon, the Peruvian spoke on the subject.
“Not only do we have something in common, but what he does not want for the coming years is the issue of illicit drugs and other illegal economic activities taking place where in some cases, some heads of state have said that drug trafficking is now entering certain sites to replace the functions of the state, as noted by the president of Mexico, the issue of tax collection, well, these organizations compete with the state in this kind of thing “, he said to reporters.
“But I think the important thing is that these discussions have been transparent, which is not often because they were political issues and should not be discussed, but they have now touched on all subjects. The United States has signaled its responsibility in the matter of the fight against drugs and I think progress has been made in the integration and complementation of what America is, “said Ollanta.

MONTERREY, NUEVO LEÓN
Edgar Adrian Izaguirre Gutierrez, aka El Alto, who escaped from the prison here, was shot and killed on Monday along with another man in a stolen van. Of the 37 escapees, 2 have been killed in shootouts with police and 9 have been recaptured.
Late Monday, 2 more executed people were found, bringing to 7 the total killed statewide in just a few hours.
A 15 year old was shot and killed while walking on Sunday, and a 28 year old bystander was wounded in the legs. With this, it brings to 14 the total killed in one week in the city.
Elias Alvarez Hernandez, the head of public security for the state, says the recent increase in violence is due to new disputes between the Knights Templars, La Familia y Nueva Generación cartels. The head of the state police said there will be a show of force on the Michoacan border between the states of Jalisco and Mexico. It was also announced that 6, 800 military are being moved into he state.
Mexican author Lydia Cacho, visiting here, says that the Sinaloa and Zetas cartels began recruiting victims within the South American country under false pretenses or by force for purposes of trafficking and sexual exploitation. “Selling a human being is much more profitable than drugs,” she says. Her book, Esclavas del Poder (Slaves of Power) explores this. She continued “Both the Zetas and the Sinaloa cartel are already here and are buying human beings,” warned the journalist, who said they are working in small communities that are “in poverty and whose economy is damaged.” She tells of a drug dealer she interviewed that said a kilo of cocaine you sell once, but a girl you can sell hundreds of times. She also took aim at the normalization of prostitution made by society and the political system. “According to statistics from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), in Argentina there are half a million women trapped in trafficking networks, and there are 8 000 brothels, including the thousand verified in the city of Buenos Aires by the NGO La Alameda”. In her book, Cacho recounts the history of women and girls who escaped the circuit of trafficking. “In five years I have seen the exercise of the most infamous cruelty with little girls prostituted, humiliated. But I also saw people risking everything to save them. That helped me keep sanity to such horror and not lose faith in the human condition “she said. The writer quoted the emblematic Susana Trimarco, who for 10 years has been searching for her daughter Marita Veron and along the way, managed to free dozens of young victims of prostitution. She still has not managed to find the whereabouts of the woman.
