• EL SALVADOR: CRACKDOWN ON COMPANIES LAUNDERING DRUG MONEY

    Spanish/Nat El Salvador is waging war in the law courts against new businesses set up to launder drug money. The Central American nation, commended by the United States for its efforts to combat narcotics trafficking, has become a favourite state through which to invest drugs money. New legislation is being drafted to block the illegal flow of U-S dollars into Salvadorean bank accounts. Laundering drug money is big business in El Salvador. Speculation linking modern private enterprise to Latin America's international drug cartels is common. Proving it is another matter. El Salvador's legal system is often too poorly equipped to carry out the necessary investigations on companies which may be laundering money. But projects ranging from commercial centres to pri...

  • Crossing Mexico's Other Border

    When traveling from Central America to the United States through Mexico, immigrants are forced to battle drug cartels, corrupt police officers, and human traffickers, all before they even come close to the US border. People tend to assume that the immigrants crossing the US--Mexico border are all Mexican. The reality is that a large percentage of them come from Central America, and their journey north is grueling. To get to the US, they first have to pass through Mexico, an ordeal that often ends up being even more difficult than getting into the United States. Most migrants cross into Mexico on rafts, via the Suchiate River. After that, they need to protect themselves from corrupt Mexican police, drug cartels like the infamous Zetas, and even fellow migrants. They often travel by foot an...

    El Salvador is a tropical country where you can find stunning beaches like these, as well as magnificent nature reserves like this one, and amazing cultural remains. And in 2017 this country is celebrating. 2017 is the 25th anniversary of the Peace Agreements which put an end to the bitter and cruel civil war which last more than 12 years and caused more than 70,000 deaths. While this 25th anniversary should be reason for celebration, it is hard to celebrate when you look at the current situation that El Salvador finds itself in.

    The crackdown on immigration in the United States under the Trump administration has turned Buffalo, New York into a hiding spot for undocumented immigrants hoping to escape the Department of Homeland Security and eventually make their way to Canada, where they can claim refugee status. VICE News Tonight correspondent Roberto Ferdman followed José, who recently decided he had no other alternative, as he fled the United States to make his journey to Canada and restart his life. He sought sanctuary in a church in Buffalo for weeks, where his family joined him so they could sneak their way up to the border.

    Natural Sound Riot police in El Salvador have used tear gas and fired shots in the air to disperse a protest by 600 former soldiers. Violence flared as they demanded land and money they say they were promised by the government. The rioters burned tyres and overturned cars in the clash outside the government building where President Armando Calderon Sol was meeting the Spanish Prime Minister. Several police officers and protesters were injured in the violence. The offers of land and severance pay were made in the 1992 peace accord that ended 12 years of civil war in which 75-thousand people died. The protesters, armed with metal rods and stones, came face to face with around 500 anti-riot police as they tried to reach the presidential palace in San Salvador. At the...

Spanish/Nat El Salvador is waging war in the law courts against new businesses set up to launder drug money. The Central American nation, commended by the United States for its efforts to combat narcotics trafficking, has become a favourite state through which to invest drugs money. New legislation is being drafted to block the illegal flow of U-S dollars into Salvadorean bank accounts. Laundering drug money is big business in El Salvador. Speculation linking modern private enterprise to Latin America's international drug cartels is common. Proving it is another matter. El Salvador's legal system is often too poorly equipped to carry out the necessary investigations on companies which may be laundering money. But projects ranging from commercial centres to private housing developments have all fallen under suspicion. A recent U-S report claims Latin American drug cartels find it increasingly easy to launder profits in Central America. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "We have the stock exchange, we have investment companies, courier companies, money lenders, casinos, security companies, specialised metalworks, jewellers, we have travel agencies, car showrooms, also we have furniture companies. That is to say there is a huge number of organisations which could be subject to these types of (money laundering) operations. And also, banks at times are used for these types of operations. As a result we must be very alert." SUPER CAPTION: Claudio de Rosa, Executive Director of Association of Salvadorean Bankers The U-S says Central America is as involved in the laundering of drug money as it is in drug trafficking itself. Inadequate regional laws have aided the drug traffickers, and harsher laws in Mexico, to the north, have ensured that the drugs business remains focused in Central American countries. The problem is further compounded, throughout Central America, by high levels of corruption within government and the armed forces. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "Definitely, without the support of civil influence in power it is not possible that drug cartels could operate in these countries." SUPER CAPTION: Gerson Martinez, Vice president of Assembly Plans are underway to unite all Central American nations in one concerted effort against the narcotics trade. But the infrastructure is not yet in place and, according to some analysts, corruption already has a very tight grip. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "What is growing in our country is the corruption, corruption in the police system, corruption among politicians, corruption within the armed forces and corruption in the financial system. This generates impunity and, from there, narco-trafficking grows." SUPER CAPTION: Carlos Aviles, narco-trafficking analyst A proposed law known as the "Law against the Laundering of Money and other Activities" is currently being considered by the Legislative Assembly. Its terms would ensure El Salvador's financial system would report on all suspicious transactions of capital. Until then, countries like El Salvador remain a favourite destination for the ill-gotten gains of the drug world.

People tend to assume that the immigrants crossing the US--Mexico border are all Mexican. The reality is that a large percentage of them come from Central America, and their journey north is grueling. To get to the US, they first have to pass through Mexico, an ordeal that often ends up being even more difficult than getting into the United States. Most migrants cross into Mexico on rafts, via the Suchiate River. After that, they need to protect themselves from corrupt Mexican police, drug cartels like the infamous Zetas, and even fellow migrants. They often travel by foot and by pubic transit, but many of them ride on top of "the Beast," the freight trains that travel from the south to the north of Mexico. While the majority of the migrants are young men, a small percentage of them are women who endure hardships like the possibility of being raped by basically anyone they come across. Some of them are forced to stay in the border state of Chiapas and work as prostitutes because they are too weak to keep going, need to save some money to continue their journey, or, if they decide to stay , so they can travel back and forth between Mexico and their home countries to visit their kids[NJ1] . In this episode of Fringes, we followed Yoana, a young girl from Guatemala who has been living in the small town of Huixtla, Chiapas, working as a prostitute to make money to help her two sons. We tagged along with a special unit from the state government that is in charge of protecting migrants as they travel through Chiapas. We then hopped on board the Beast with more than 400 other migrants traveling from Arriaga to Ixtepec, Oaxaca, to try to understand the hardships they go through and why they leave their homes in the first place.

Natural Sound Riot police in El Salvador have used tear gas and fired shots in the air to disperse a protest by 600 former soldiers. Violence flared as they demanded land and money they say they were promised by the government. The rioters burned tyres and overturned cars in the clash outside the government building where President Armando Calderon Sol was meeting the Spanish Prime Minister. Several police officers and protesters were injured in the violence. The offers of land and severance pay were made in the 1992 peace accord that ended 12 years of civil war in which 75-thousand people died. The protesters, armed with metal rods and stones, came face to face with around 500 anti-riot police as they tried to reach the presidential palace in San Salvador. At the time, President Armando Calderon Sol was holding a press conference with Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez, at the end of his two-day visit to El Salvador. The former soldiers overturned a patrol car and began hurling stones at the police, injuring two officers. The police reacted by throwing tear gas and firing shots into the air. The rioters are demanding severance payments of up to three thousand U-S dollars. They also want the government to speed up the handover of lands which were they were promised in the peace agreement signed three years ago. The former soldiers say they've had to resort to violence to pressurise the government into keeping its side of the bargain. The violent clashes around the government building lasted for over an hour. All businesses in the neighbourhood were closed for part of the day. Police reinforcements were deployed to the surrounding areas to avoid further attacks in the city centre, while the authorities hunted for protesters. A number of arrests were made in a nearby park. This is the second violent clash by the former soldiers in the last three weeks. In January 1992 the government and the guerrilla group Frente Farabundo Mart¡ (FMLN) signed a peace agreement ending 12 years of civil war which claimed over 75 thousand lives.
