'No one can deny that drug-trafficking has advanced in Argentina'
Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricardo Lorenzetti has said that drug-trafficking has advanced in the country, with an increase of insecurity rates as its consequence.
“No one can deny that drug-trafficking has advanced in Argentina, resulting in insecurity, more violent crimes,” Lorenzetti said.
The Justice stressed the importance of “inclusion” to fight drug-trafficking. “People who are excluded from society, who has no future […] and who happens to have an easy access to drugs make up an explosive cocktail,” he pointed out, while stressing the importance of “State policies” to tackle this.
“In Argentina we need to work with State policies, because if we do not we just talk about the problems or we tackle the urgent ones but not the cause, the roots that create the issue, because there is never time,” Lorenzetti said.
