It is not possible to leave behind the war against crime: Alejandro Hope

Although President López Obrador affirmed that "there is no war" against crime, analyst Alejandro Hope indicated that levels of insecurity have not decreased and that there are pending lawsuits against criminal leaders.

Leaving behind the 'war against drug trafficking' in Mexico, as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said yesterday, is not and will not be possible since there are open cases against many delinquent leaders.

This was expressed by the analyst on security issues, Alejandro Hope, who also ruled out that the 'clean slate' can be applied to criminals.

In the government there is a logic of tabula rasa, it wants to leave behind the past and build the country from scratch, but this can not be done because there are judicial and administrative processes in progress, which are being built.

You can not erase the new account, because there are pending arrest warrants and extradition orders from the US government, "Hope said in an interview with Pascal Beltrán del Río for Imagen Radio.

He added that, in Mexico, officially, "there has never been a war" because no official, in the last decade, "has affirmed that there is a war against the drug traffickers."

Hope emphasized that the levels of insecurity, as President Lopez Obrador affirmed, "have not decreased" and that, according to information from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System, "there is no decrease in the number of crimes."
