WorldDominican RepublicDominican Justice Department Targets Narco Families Amidst Rising Drug Seizures

SANTO DOMINGO (Continent Post) — The Justice Department of the Dominican Republic has set its sights on dismantling the operations of five prominent Narco families spread across the nation. This announcement comes because of ongoing investigations into the extensive wealth accumulation and drug distribution networks allegedly maintained by these families over the past decade. According to official statements from the department, these families have been under scrutiny for their involvement in narcotics trafficking and the subsequent laundering of illicit profits. The investigations aim to unravel the intricate connections and resources that have enabled these criminal enterprises to thrive.


Law enforcement agencies are intensifying efforts to curb the influence of these Narco families, which have long been entrenched in the socio-economic fabric of the Dominican Republic. Authorities have vowed to pursue all legal avenues to disrupt and dismantle these networks in a bid to safeguard communities from the harmful effects of drug trafficking.


As the investigations unfold, the Justice Department remains steadfast in its commitment to uphold the rule of law and ensure accountability for those involved in criminal activities.

The crackdown on Narco families underscores the government’s determination to combat organized crime and protect the well-being of its citizens. In addition to these efforts, recent statistics reveal a concerning trend in drug trafficking. Authorities in the Dominican Republic seized 17.98 tons of cocaine in 2023, marking a significant increase compared to previous years. This figure contrasts with 27 tons seized in 2022, 19 tons in 2021, and 10 tons in 2020, highlighting the persistent challenges posed by the illicit drug trade in the region.
