International News: El Salvador detains over 100 Colombians for money laundering

Posted: Tuesday, July 18, 2023. 9:35 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, Salvadoran authorities confirmed that they detained over 100 Colombians for their alleged involvement in operating a microfinancing scheme that laundered money from drug operations, Reuters report.

Officials say that the criminal organizations used funds obtained illegally and made loans to individuals and small businesses with 20% interest.

President Nayib Bukele continues operations to crack down on gangs and has imprisoned over 70,000 suspects.

While many human rights groups denounce the measure, surveys show approval ratings by Salvadorans.

In addition, about $20 million in funds linked to drug trafficking gangs have been sent to Colombia under the scheme.
