Organized Crime & Gangs

Organ trafficking, Mexican cartels are among Costa Rica’s biggest criminal threats, says UN

“Out of the 28 victims of human trafficking reported through October 2013 in Costa Rica, 13 fell prey to illegal organ extraction and trafficking rings, according to a new report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, and Costa Rica’s Judicial Investigation Police.

Sex and organ trafficking were the two most common forms of human trafficking in Costa Rica this year, but the report also highlighted the violent side effects of increasing crack consumption here and the penetration of organized crime on the isthmus.”
