Brazil Fighting Organized Crime on the Border

first_img The Brazilian Government launched Operation Ágata 5 on its southern borders in August 2012, deploying 9,000 troops from the Navy, Air Force, Army and Marines to combat transborder and organized crime while increasing state presence in these regions. The Navy sent 30 ships into the rivers, lakes and seas bordering Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay. The Air Force provided Black Hawk and Pantera helicopters, as well as F5 and Super Tucano aircraft for air surveillance. Marines from the state of Rio Grande do Sul were called on for the entire operation. “It is a border operation whose objective is, above all, to repress crime,” said Minister of Defense Celso Amorim. General Carlos Bolivar Goellner, southern military commander, said patrolling the areas between the cities of Foz do Iguaçu, in the state of Paraná, and Corumbá, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, was critical because these areas have the most drug trafficking and smuggling of goods. With Federal Police and other interagency support, the total force participating in Operation Ágata 5 surpassed 10,000 personnel during 30 days.
