Mexican drug cartel, casino, and cryptocurrencies

On Thursday, October 15, the US Department of Justice indicted a group of 6 individuals who laundered money for a Mexican drug cartel. They’ve used casinos and front companies. 

Law enforcement investigated Asian money laundering and drug trafficking networks and, after a four-year investigation, were able to bring charges. For more information, see the US Department of Justice press release.

One of them tried to bribe a representative of the US State Department with cryptocurrency in order to get a passport to enter the United States.

The group of criminals was charged with 14 charges and each of them faces from 10 years in prison up to life imprisonment.
