Experts Discuss Ways to Combat Contraband in Brazil

From: CRE Brazil

For seminar participants at Correio Braziliense, better border control and be less tolerant of small crimes is needed.

On Tuesday morning, experts discussed solutions to the illegal trade in the seminar “Brazil we want: Unite for the End of Contraband and Crime”, supported by the Courier.

According to Augusto Nardes, Minister of the Federal Court of Audit (TCU), among the obstacles to curbing this type of crime are the lack of sharing of public safety information and failures in border control. “We do not have information sharing. So internally, we already have a hard time not having an integrated policy. We do not have a national security policy and we also do not have border governance,” the minister said. “We will be ‘drying ice’ (wasting time) in big cities until we fight organized crime at the border,” he added.
