In El Salvador the truce agreed with the support of the government is peril. Recently according to police official statement the extortions has arisen in many designated "peace zones" in different cities of the country meaning that the next phase of the truce is in tangible danger. Quoting Justice and Security Minister David Munguia Payes "The gangs have already said that they are not going to stop extorting, because that is how they make a living, at least until they have an alternative way of making money." Is it true that the first phase of El Salvador's gang truce was in a sense a success, with homicides dropping more than 40 percent since it was agreed in 2012. What now is lacking is a practical response by the government in terms of works opportunities for the gang’s members.
