The Minister of National Security, Sabina Frederic, assured on Monday morning in a press conference held in the Central Department of the PFA that “an intermediate link in a chain of drug trafficking in Greater Buenos Aires was disrupted.”

Subsequently, Federal Court 2 of San Martín, in charge of Judge Alicia Vence and Secretary Leonardo Garca, ordered the federal troops to continue with the investigations.

“As Minister Frederic said, a criminal investigation and joint work with courts and prosecutors is essential. The road is longer, but the results are more important by attacking the main distribution chains and obtaining information to be able to continue working towards the upper and lateral branches of these criminal organizations ”, added Secretary Villalba at the conference.
