Sanctions against new generation of violent drug trafficking

Yesterday, Secretary of the Treasury Janet L. Yellen announced during her travel to Mexico that OFAC has sanctioned 15 Mexican individuals — several of whom are U.S. fugitives — and two Mexico-based companies linked, directly or indirectly, to the Beltrán Leyva Organization (BLO), which continues to be one of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations in the world and is heavily involved in the transportation and distribution of deadly drugs, including fentanyl, to the United States. It has been one of the largest suppliers of cocaine to the U.S. market for over two decades.

This action was coordinated closely with the Government of Mexico, including La Unidad de Inteligencia Financiera (Mexico’s Financial Intelligence Unit), consistent with the Bicentennial Framework, which was adopted at the inaugural meeting of the High-Level Security Dialogue in October 2021 and continues to guide bilateral security cooperation between the United States and Mexico.

For the names and identification information of the designated individuals and entities, see yesterday's BankersOnline OFAC Update.
