Treasury Targets Operatives of Sinaloa Cartel

6/7/2012

Sanctions directed against a Son and Wife of Chapo Guzman Loera

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the designation of two key Sinaloa Cartel operatives, Maria Alejandrina Salazar Hernandez and Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar, a wife and son of drug lord Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman Loera, respectively. Today’s action, pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act), prohibits U.S. persons from conducting financial or commercial transactions with these two individuals, and also freezes any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction.

“Today marks the sixth time in the past year that OFAC has targeted and exposed operatives of the Chapo Guzman organization,” said OFAC Director Adam J. Szubin. “This action builds on Treasury’s aggressive efforts, alongside its law enforcement partners, to target individuals who facilitate Chapo Guzman’s drug trafficking operations and to pursue the eventual dismantlement of his organization, which is culpable in untold violence.”

OFAC is designating Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar and Maria Alejandrina Salazar Hernandez for their roles in the operations of Guzman Loera’s drug trafficking organization and the Sinaloa Cartel. Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar, along with his father Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman Loera, was indicted on multiple drug trafficking charges in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in August 2009. Maria Alejandrina Salazar Hernandez provides material support to the drug trafficking activities of her husband Guzman Loera and the Sinaloa Cartel.

Guzman Loera and the Sinaloa Cartel were identified by the President as significant foreign narcotics traffickers pursuant to the Kingpin Act in 2001 and 2009, respectively.

Today’s action would not have been possible without the key support of the Drug Enforcement Administration as well as that of the ICE Homeland Security Investigations directorate.

Internationally, OFAC has designated more than 1,100 businesses and individuals linked to 97 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 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.

Treasury Targets Leading Figures of Sinaloa Cartel

5/8/2012
Action Includes Sanctions against Two of Chapo Guzman’s Sons

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the designation of four key Sinaloa Cartel operatives, including two sons of Sinaloa drug lord Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman Loera. Today’s action, pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act), prohibits U.S. persons from conducting financial or commercial transactions with these four individuals, and also freezes any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction.

OFAC is designating Ivan Archivaldo Guzman Salazar and Ovidio Guzman Lopez for their roles in their father’s drug trafficking organization and the Sinaloa Cartel. In 2005, Mexican authorities arrested Ivan Archivaldo Guzman Salazar on money laundering charges, but he was later released. Ovidio Guzman Lopez also plays a significant role in his father’s drug trafficking activities. Noel Salgueiro Nevarez is the head of the Sinaloa Cartel in the Mexican state of Chihuahua where a bloody turf war has claimed the lives of thousands. Mexican authorities arrested him in October 2011, and he remains in Mexican custody. Ovidio Limon Sanchez, also currently in Mexican custody, is a major operative for the Sinaloa Cartel in Sinaloa state. He was arrested in November 2011 by Mexican authorities. Additionally, in 2009, a jury in the U.S. District for the Central District of California returned an indictment against Ovidio Limon Sanchez, charging him with multiple counts of drug trafficking.

“OFAC will aggressively target those individuals who facilitate Chapo Guzman’s drug trafficking operations, including family members,” said OFAC Director Adam J. Szubin. “With the Government of Mexico, we are firm in our resolve to dismantle Chapo Guzman’s drug trafficking organization.”

Joaquin Guzman Loera and the Sinaloa Cartel were previously identified by the President as significant foreign narcotics traffickers pursuant to the Kingpin Act in 2001 and 2009, respectively.

Today’s action would not have been possible without the support of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). “In order to put organizations like the Sinaloa Cartel out of business, we must continue to utilize every tool available to ensure that these criminal groups and their associates cannot exploit the U.S. financial system,” said DEA Chief of Financial Operations John Arvanitis. “DEA is attacking the Sinaloa Cartel and other organizations at every level like never before, so they are put out of business and their leaders are brought to justice.”

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 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.”

Treasury Sanctions an Alleged Top Sinaloa Cartel Operative

March 6, 2012

The Wall Street Journal on March 6, 2012 released the following:

“Treasury Sanctions Top Sinaloa Cartel Operative

By Samuel Rubenfeld

The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control said Tuesday it imposed sanctions Jesus Reynaldo Zambada Garcia, a man described as a key operative in Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, along with two Mexican companies for their ties to one of Sinaloa’s drug lords.

The action, taken under the Kingpin Act, freezes any U.S. assets and bans Americans from conducting transactions with them.

Jesus Reynaldo Zambada Garcia controlled a drug trafficking route via the Mexico City International Airport on behalf of his brother, Ismael, who was designated under the Kingpin Act in 2002. Jesus Reynaldo was arrested by Mexico in October 2008 and is awaiting extradition to the U.S., Treasury said.

“OFAC continues to target Ismael Zambada Garcia and his drug trafficking and money laundering network to cripple their influence and deny them access to the U.S. financial system,” said Adam Szubin, in a statement.

Also Tuesday, Treasury designated two Culiacan-based businesses for being owned or controlled by Zynthia Borboa Zazueta, who was sanctioned by OFAC in May 2007.

The companies, Zarka de Occidente S.A. de C.V., is an agricultural firm, and Zarka de Mexico S.A. de C.V., is a retail clothing and accessories business.

OFAC also deleted and changed some names on its blacklist; the full rundown of Tuesday’s moves is here.”

Alleged Drug Traffickers Sanctioned by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)

January 18, 2012

Voice of America on January 17, 2012 released the following:

“Three named for providing “material support to the drug trafficking activities”

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, or OFAC, has designated three people with ties to the head of the Sinaloa Cartel as narcotics traffickers under the Kingpin Act. Americans are prohibited from conducting financial or commercial transactions with the designees and any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen.

OFAC named Mexican nationals Oscar Alvarez Zepeda and Joel Valdez Benites, and Colombian national Carlos Mario Torres Hoyos, saying they provide “material support to the drug trafficking activities” of Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin Guzman Loera, also known as Chapo Guzman.

“Today marks the fourth time in the past year that OFAC has targeted and exposed the support structures of the organization led by Chapo Guzman” said Adam Szubin, director of OFAC in a statement.

The Treasury Department said all three traffickers have ties to Colombian drug trafficker Jorge Milton Cifuentes Villa, who was designated under the Kingpin Act in February 2011 along with 70 other individuals and entities. Cifuentes Villa was indicted on drug trafficking charges in New York federal court, and earlier charged in Florida federal court with drug trafficking and money laundering.

The most recent designations are part of an ongoing effort to apply financial measures against foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations worldwide. The Treasury Department has designated more than 1,000 individuals and entities under the Kingpin Act since June 2000.

Penalties for violating the Kingpin Act range from civil penalties of up to $1,000,075,000 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 for violating the Kingpin Act.

The U.S. Treasury Department “will continue to work with law enforcement and foreign counterparts,” said Mr. Szubin, “to help disrupt, and eventually dismantle, Chap Guzman’s criminal empire.””

“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.

Treasury Sanctions Cocaine and Bulk Cash Trafficking Coordinator with Ties to Sinaloa Cartel Leader Chapo Guzman

9/15/2011 ​​
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced the designation of Mexican national Alfredo Vasquez Hernandez (a.k.a. Alfredo Compadre) pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act) for providing support to and acting on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel and its leader, Joaquin Guzman Loera (a.k.a. Chapo Guzman).

“Alfredo Vasquez Hernandez has played a key role in Chapo Guzman’s drug trafficking and bulk cash smuggling operations,” said OFAC Director Adam J. Szubin. “Today’s designation of Chapo Guzman’s logistical coordinator increases the pressure on the Sinaloa Cartel and Chapo’s drug trafficking organization.”

As a result of today’s action, U.S. persons are prohibited from conducting financial or commercial transactions with the designees and any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen.

A federal grand jury in the Northern District of Illinois indicted Vasquez Hernandez in August 2009 on two counts of conspiring to traffic drugs in an indictment targeting the Sinaloa Cartel and its leaders, Chapo Guzman and Ismael Zambada Garcia. The indictment charges Vasquez Hernandez and others with conspiring to import cocaine and heroin into the United States. Specifically, the indictment describes Vasquez Hernandez as the logistical coordinator of the importation of multi-ton quantities of cocaine from Mexico and South and Central American countries into the United States, and of deliveries of bulk currency from the United States to Mexico to Chapo Guzman. Mexican authorities arrested Vasquez Hernandez in January 2011. His extradition to the United States is currently pending.

OFAC worked closely with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), in particular, the DEA Chicago Field Division and the DEA Los Angeles High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area/Southern California Drug Task Force on this investigation.

Today’s action is part of ongoing efforts pursuant to the Kingpin Act to apply financial measures against significant foreign narcotics traffickers worldwide. Internationally, more than 1,000 individuals and entities linked to drug kingpins named by the President and OFAC have been designated 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.”

More Added to SDN List Under the Kingpin Act; OFAC Targets Alleged Supplier for Sinaloa Cartel

February 24, 2011

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced yesterday the designation of Colombian national Jorge Milton Cifuentes Villa (a.k.a. Elkin de Jesus Lopez Salazar) and more than 70 individuals and entities in Cifuentes Villa’s alleged drug trafficking and money laundering organization as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers (SDNTK’s).

The 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 designated parties may have under U.S. jurisdiction.

Jorge Milton Cifuentes Villa, a native Colombian who also holds Mexican citizenship, allegedly leads a drug trafficking organization with operations in Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador, Panama and Spain that is closely allied with the Sinaloa Cartel headed by Mexican national Joaquin Guzman Loera (El Chapo). Guzman Loera and the Sinaloa Cartel were identified by the President as Significant Foreign Narcotics Traffickers pursuant to the Kingpin Act in 2001 and 2009, respectively. In November 2010, Cifuentes Villa and Guzman Loera were indicted on drug trafficking and money laundering charges in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Alfredo Alvarez Zepeda (a.k.a. Gabino Ontiveros Rios), an alleged drug trafficking liaison between the Cifuentes Villa organization and Guzman Loera, and alleged criminal associates who provide material support to Cifuentes Villa’s drug trafficking activities, Jaime Alberto Roll Cifuentes, Winston Nicholls Eastman, David Gomez Ortiz, and Shimon Yelinek were also designated.

Multiple family members of Cifuentes Villa were also designated for allegedly supporting his drug trafficking activities and/or for helping to manage his companies. Two of today’s designees, Dolly de Jesus Cifuentes Villa and Hildebrando Alexander Cifuentes Villa, are also charged with drug trafficking and money laundering in the Southern District of Florida in the same indictment as Jorge Milton Cifuentes Villa and Guzman Loera.
