The government will add to the sales sector of cars high-end services to subjects obliged to report suspicious operations of money laundering, as a measure to combat the problem of drug trafficking.

This was anticipated by the national secretary for the Fight against Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism (Senaclaft), Jorge Chediak, who in dialogue with Radio Monte Carlo maintained that this type of vehicles “They are the ones who usually buy those new rich people who are the launderers.”

Chediak recalled that “there is no vaccine” against money laundering and recalled that “in Uruguay, Unlike the rest of the region, the second crime is not corruption, which is in seventh place, but the smuggling”.

The leader maintained that drug traffickers “sometimes have half a dozen high-end stores and then you have to control, because it is something that is used a lot to launder assets, both in first sale and resale.”

Changes to improve prevention

With the arrival of the DEA ruled out for now, since its focus is on the fight against fentanyl that reaches its borders, the Senaclaft analyzes different changes to improve prevention, an improvement in persecution of crimes and add a greater amount of work to assist the agents who must issue reports of suspicious operations.

Work in legal modifications to improve the fight against money laundering is another of the lines analyzed by the entity, when experts pointed out that the country is today in a “more vulnerable” state than in the past.

Thus, Senaclavt requested a greater amount of resources for agencies specialized in combating organized crime, as well as better coordination. Furthermore, they considered that the regulatory part is very good, but the application needs to be improved.
