OFAC targets drug traffickers and al-Qa'ida network

The Treasury Department has announced that OFAC has identified Zulma Maria Musso Torres as a significant foreign narcotics trafficker pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act). Musso Torres (a.k.a. “La Patrona” or “La Señora”) is the leader of an international drug trafficking organization primarily based in Santa Marta, Magdalena, Colombia.

Musso Torres is assisted by her two sons, Washington Antunez Musso and Juan Carlos Reales Britto, and her husband, Luis Antonio Bermudez Mejia, who were also designated for providing material support to the narcotics trafficking activities of Musso Torres.

Also designated yesterday were two Colombian entities, Exclusive Import Export S.A.S. and Poligono Santa Marta S.A.S., that are owned, controlled, or directed by, or act for or on behalf of, Antunez Musso and Reales Britto.

Treasury also reported that OFAC yesterday imposed sanctions against five al-Qa’ida supporters operating in Turkey who provided a range of financial and travel facilitation services to al-Qa’ida.
