An Analysis from InSight Crime on the role of the dark web in cartels and transnational organized crime networks activities

InSight Crime published an interview to Amado Philip de Andrés, the representative of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Central America and the Caribbean. De Andrés outlines the emerging role of the dark web in cartels and transnational organized crime networks activities. “In Latin America and the Caribbean, cartels are exploring the dark web to locate buyers for large-scale cocaine shipments, while Central American gangs have used these sites to advertise their willingness to help with cross-border trafficking. Other regional drug traffickers reportedly use underground web forums to source synthetic opioids from Asia”.
