Puerto Rico Deemed Safer than Ever

Earlier this week 133 individuals in Puerto Rico were identified and indicted for protecting drug traffickers. In an address to the Puerto Rico Hotel & Tourism Association, Puerto Rico Tourism Company Executive Director Mario Gonzalez Lafuente assures the community that the island is now safer for everyone.

"The actions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation were an important effort to reassure the public that the members of the Puerto Rican police force and other law enforcement officials will uphold the law, as they promised when they took their oath of office," said Gonzalez in his statement. "This will help ensure that all visitors to Puerto Rico, and indeed al Puerto Ricans, will be safer than ever before."
