África: Criminal Unit to Confront Drug Trafficking

first_imgBy Dialogo January 01, 2012 Drug trafficking is a major threat to the development of Guinea-Bissau and has led to a sharp increase in illicit drug use in that country. In order to help stem the flow of illegal substances, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) assisted the country in the creation of its Transnational Criminal Unit. Founded in December 2010, the group is in the process of becoming fully operational while it continues working to disband organized crime. West Africa is considered a major gateway for cocaine smuggled from South America into Europe. In 2009, an estimated 13 tons of the cocaine trafficked via West Africa were consumed or stored in the region, causing serious health concerns, UNODC reported.
