Kenneth Blanco, U.S. deputy assistant attorney general, said that the new adversarial criminal justice system will give more autonomy to prosecutors and investigators to focus on the most relevant cases.
Criminal organizations launder 29 billion dollars annually between Mexico and the United States, Kenneth Blanco, deputy assistant attorney general, said.
“This figure makes it clear that the problem is not just Mexican nor American, but bilateral, and that it affects the economies of both countries and the world,” he said.
During the inauguration of the training program in oral trials organized by financial and tax authorities of both countries, Blanco said that the two governments must cooperate to combat money laundering.
He added that through the new adversarial criminal justice system, the role and responsibility of prosecutors and investigators will change “dramatically”, since they will have more autonomy to focus on the most relevant cases.
“They will be able to conduct proactive investigations against criminals instead of acting reactively,” Blanco explained.
“This means that authorities will be able to devote themselves mostly to go after and dismantle organized crime networks,” he added.
Blanco reiterated the willingness of the US government to work with Mexico’s Ministry of Finance on this task.
