Mexico is the third country with the most organized crime in the world

Although President Andrés Manuel López Obrador keeps saying every day that everything is going well in the country, Mexico occupies third place with the most organized crime in the world, for crimes of transnational scope, according to the “2023 World Organized Crime Index report A Fractured World”.

In AMLO’s six-year term, official data reveal that both the number of homicides and the number of missing persons exceed the administrations of his predecessors, Enrique Peña Nieto and Felipe Calderón.

However, a political scientist points out that the crime of human trafficking is also one of the greatest threats.

The document published by the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) shows that Mexico was only behind Colombia and confirms what the media documents that Mexicans experience daily: massacres, homicides, kidnappings, and extortion.

This organization that carried out the study belongs to civil society, is independent, based in Switzerland, and has a presence on all five continents.

Bolivian sociologist, political scientist, and international relations specialist Franco Gamboa assured that mafias are protected by groups of economic and political power.

“Crime, violence, and the main threats that revolve around human trafficking, drug and weapons trafficking, are related to fragmented, balkanized societies and destroyed by inequality, which leads many citizens to manipulate the law in favor of the strongest, the one who has the most money and abusing privileges,” he added.

Mexico and Central America register the highest level of crime, followed by South America, and are ranked third globally for crimes against flora and fauna.

Although the report corresponds to data obtained in 2022, it shows a clear trend in the rise of crime rates where Mexico is one of the worst in the Western Hemisphere along with Colombia, as it indicates that the region of the Americas has become the center worldwide for illegal markets.

Mexico registers a shameful crime rate of 7.57, making it the third country with the most organized crime in the world. The first place is occupied by Myanmar in Asia, with a rate of 8.15.

Mexico has the first place in crime among Costa Rica, Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and El Salvador and the second among the 35 American countries because the first was for Colombia.

The report points out that America is the center of crime: “The regions of the (American) continent consistently appear among the top three positions globally for 11 of the 15 criminal markets measured by the Index.”

The index explains that all markets and criminal actors present in the Americas are present in several countries, highlighting the reach of these markets and the importance of the continent for global illicit trade.

 “At the regional level, mafia-type groups exert a stronger influence on criminal markets in the Americas than on any other continent, mainly in the form of drug trafficking cartels,” the report explains.
