Treasury Targets Top Guatemalan Drug Trafficker

1/19/2012

“WASHINGTON- The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the designation of Guatemalan national Marllory Dadiana Chacon Rossell and seven other individuals and entities connected to Chacon Rossell’s drug trafficking and money laundering organization as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers (SDNTs). Today’s action, taken pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act), prohibits U.S. persons from conducting financial or commercial transactions with these entities and individuals and freezes any assets the designees may have under U.S. jurisdiction.

Marllory Dadiana Chacon Rossell leads a drug trafficking and money laundering organization based out of Guatemala with operations in Honduras and Panama that supplies the Mexican drug cartels. Chacon Rossell is believed to be one of the most prolific narcotics traffickers in Central America. She is responsible for transshipping thousands of kilograms of cocaine per month through Guatemala, into Mexico, and on to the United States. Chacon Rossell is also believed to launder tens of millions of U.S. dollars in narcotics proceeds each month, making her the most active money launderer in Guatemala.

“Marllory Chacon’s drug trafficking activities and her ties to the Mexican drug cartels make her a critical figure in the narcotics trade,” said OFAC Director Adam J. Szubin. “By designating Chacon, OFAC is disrupting those activities and closing off from the U.S. financial system the network of companies aiding Chacon’s illicit activities.”

OFAC is also designating Jorge Andres Fernandez Carbajal, Chacon’s husband, a Honduran citizen responsible for providing logistical support for his wife’s organization. Hayron Eduardo Borrayo Lasmibat and Mirza Silvana Hernandez De Borrayo, both Guatemalan nationals, are also being designated today for providing support to Marllory Chacon’s drug trafficking activities. OFAC is also designating two Guatemalan companies, Bingoton Millonario and Revoluciones Por Minuto Aceleracion S.A., which are owned, controlled, or directed by Mirza Silvana Hernandez de Borrayo and Hayron Eduardo Borrayo Lasmibat, and two Panamanian companies, Andrea Yari S.A. and Fer’Seg S.A, which are owned, controlled, or directed by Jorge Andres Fernandez Carbajal.

OFAC coordinated on this investigation with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Today’s action is part of ongoing efforts pursuant to the Kingpin Act to apply financial measures against significant foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations worldwide. The Treasury Department has designated more than 1,000 individuals and entities pursuant to the Kingpin Act since June 2000.

Penalties for violations of the Kingpin Act range from civil penalties of up to $1.075 million per violation to more severe criminal penalties. Criminal penalties for corporate officers may include up to 30 years in prison and fines up to $5 million. Criminal fines for corporations may reach $10 million. Other individuals face up to 10 years in prison and fines pursuant to Title 18 of the United States Code for criminal violations of the Kingpin Act.

“Treasury Targets Sinaloa Cartel Narcotics Distribution Network Under The Kingpin Act

10/27/2011
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the designation of a key Sinaloa Cartel lieutenant, Martin Guadencio Avendano Ojeda, his two brothers and two companies located in Mexico pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act).

“Today’s action aims to disrupt the ability of Martin Avendano Ojeda’s drug distribution network and its money laundering businesses to generate funds for the Sinaloa Cartel,” said OFAC Director Adam Szubin. “These actions build on Treasury’s ongoing efforts to identify and disrupt the financial pathways exploited by the Sinaloa Cartel, Ismael Zambada Garcia, and his lieutenants.”

Martin Guadencio Avendano Ojeda controls a money laundering and narcotics distribution network based in Culiacan, Mexico, that is supplied by Sinaloa Cartel leader Ismael Zambada Garcia and facilitates the importation of narcotics from Mexico into the U.S. with the assistance of his brothers, Hector Manuel and Sergio Avendano Ojeda, who are also designated today.

Ismael Zambada Garcia and the Sinaloa Cartel were previously identified by the President as significant foreign narcotics traffickers pursuant to the Kingpin Act in 2002 and 2009, respectively.

Treasury also designated Autos Mini, a car dealership in Ensenada, Baja California owned by Martin Guadencio Avendano Ojeda, and Autodromo Culiacan, an auto race track located in Culiacan, Sinaloa owned by Martin and his brother Hector Manuel Avendano Ojeda.

As a result of today’s action, U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in transactions with the designees and any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen. This action was supported by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Internal Revenue Service and is the latest in ongoing efforts by OFAC to apply financial pressure to Mexican drug trafficking organizations and to pursue those who profit from drug trafficking.

“DEA and our partners, to include the Government of Mexico, continue to pursue the highest levels of the Sinaloa Cartel, as well as their business associates, financial backers, and those who profit from drug trafficking, violence and corruption,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. “The Cartel amasses a fortune in illicit assets by trafficking drugs to the United States. These Treasury sanctions represent yet another targeted strike against Cartel leadership and the financial networks that fuel the activities of the Sinaloa Cartel.”

Internationally, OFAC has designated more than 1,000 businesses and individuals linked to 94 drug kingpins since June 2000. Penalties for violations of the Kingpin Act range from civil penalties of up to $1.075 million per violation to more severe criminal penalties. Criminal penalties for corporate officers may include up to 30 years in prison and fines of up to $5 million. Criminal fines for corporations may reach $10 million. Other individuals could face up to 10 years in prison and fines pursuant to Title 18 of the United States Code for criminal violations of the Kingpin Act.

“4/20/2011
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury today announced the designation of Kongra-Gel founders Cemil Bayik and Duran Kalkan and leaders Remzi Kartal, Sabri Ok and Adem Uzun as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers (SDNTs) pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act).

Formerly known as the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), the Kongra-Gel was named by the President as a significant foreign narcotics trafficker under the Kingpin Act in May 2008 for its more than two decades-long participation in drug trafficking. Kongra-Gel uses its network across Europe to produce, transport, and traffic opiates and cannabis. Drug trafficking is one of the Kongra-Gel’s most lucrative criminal activities. The organization uses drug proceeds to obtain weapons and materials. The State Department designated the Kongra-Gel as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist in 2001 pursuant to Executive Order 13224 and as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in 1997.

“We are striking at the heart of Kongra Gel with this action against its founders, key leaders and sources of funding and will continue efforts to suppress the flow of illicit narcotics proceeds to this organization in support of its terrorist activities,” said Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen.

One of its founders, Cemil Bayik is also a senior military commander of the Kongra-Gel.
