Uruguay's Security Minister: "Feudalization" of Drug Trafficking

BRAZIL / 31 OCT 2010 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN
In an academic forum in Montevideo, Uruguay’s Interior Minister Eduardo Bonomi said the country is experiencing a “feudalization” of the criminal world in that country, a report by El Pais newspaper said. The minister made specific reference to Serbian, Mexican, Colombian and Brazilian criminal networks that are infiltrating the country, a process the minister worries will accelerate Uruguayan groups’ learning curve.
