$420 billion of drug money laundered by Wachovia
« on: December 12, 2012, 11:12:49 pm »
Here's the quote: "Wachovia failed to effectively monitor for potential money laundering activity more than $420 billion in financial transactions with the CDCs"

Here's the link:http://www.justice.gov/usao/fls/PressReleases/100317-02.html

I'm wondering how I can find which cartel(s) it was. Any ideas?

I'll check, but it was almost certainly the Sinaloa and their allies.

They tend to be the chosen partner of the USA and Mexican government, and most often recognized and accepted as running strategic plazas.

Santander and HSBC's illicit dealings in Mexico all appear to have occured in Culiacan and Tijuana.

What a terribly revealing coincidence.

Ah, here we go. One of the particular charges on the Mexican side of things, in connection with Wachovia was Pedro Alatorre, who is allegedly the head of finances for the Sinaloa Cartel, if the Mexican authorities can be trusted.
