Cartels Seek European Foothold

22:47, April 16, 2013

Mexican drug cartels are increasingly looking to move onto the European mainland, according to a Europol press release on Friday.

Groups like Los Zetas are responsible for human trafficking from Europe to Mexico, and weapons from Southeast Europe are transported by Mexican gangs for sale in South and Central America, the press release stated. The Sinaloa Cartel recently attempted to expand their wholesale cocaine business, but was thwarted by an intelligence operation, according to Europol.

Mexican organized crime groups have developed a “central role” in international crime, dominate the global cocaine market, and play a large role in the export of synthetic drugs to Europe and Asia, the press release said.
