The vice-president of the Employers' Confederation of the Mexican Republic (COPARMEX), Rogelio Sierra, said that the Cuban-American mafia controls human trafficking and is linked to the Zetas, a group of locally hired assassins, reported the Granma newspaper today.
The entrepreneur affirmed that Russian organized crime groups are focused on the trafficking of women and prostitution, although they also deal in drug trafficking.
Likewise, he held that there are groups of the "Korean mafia" that control street dealers and the "entry of smuggled goods, which is spreading throughout the country."
Sierra denounced "the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few and the creation of a wide poverty sector," which, in his opinion, has become "a breeding ground for crime."
He proposed the parties to put their interests aside and join the struggle against crime.
