CORRUPTION IS THE UNDERWORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS COMMODITY
I'm very grateful that the Tampa Bay Times published a revised version of my article about Mexican corruption in yesterday's Sunday edition. Unfortunately, now that General Salvador Cienfuegos no longer faces the consequences of his corruption, Mexican politicians are attempting to further restrict cooperation between U.S. and Mexican law enforcement officials by proposing a bill that would require Mexican federal, state and local officials to obtain permission from a "high-level security panel" before talking with foreign agents, such as those working for DEA and the FBI. If this bill is passed, it will severely curtail the flow of information between Mexican and U.S. law enforcement officers. This bill will snuff out the light of justice that might otherwise shine on prior and future decades of corruption:
I'd like to thank both Thomson Reuters and KYC360 for publishing my article today about why we've been deceived by U.S. claims that our nation's leaders are doing everything possible to support the troops in the trenches and humanity. They're not. We'll never win the supply side of this "war" if we turn a blind eye on those that accept the most deadly commodity distributed by the underworld, corruption. Those that abuse their positions of trust, whether in politics or the financial community, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That's not happening. Please read the article at the link below and share it with as many people as possible. Your voice makes a difference:
In this article former U.S. undercover agent, Robert Mazur confesses that he, his fellow law enforcement agents on the front lines, the U.S. public and the world's communities have been deceived. A small band of the politically powerful have, time and time again, undermined the integrity of "the war...
BEYOND THE FINCEN FILES - WEBINAR WITH THOMSON REUTERS
Nathan Lynch of Thomson Reuters kindly invited me to participate in the Beyond the FinCEN Files webinar that will air globally on November 17. I'm grateful for this opportunity to share my view about a segment of the international banking, business, and financial service provider sectors that knowingly assist clients who possess money seeking secrecy from governments. Those professionals taught me dozens of money laundering techniques that continue to run beneath law enforcement radar today.
Having been a money launderer within the underworld for five years (working undercover), I can attest to the fact that, once I was believed to truly be a criminal by many professionals, our discussions behind closed boardroom doors were far different than what those same bankers claimed publicly to the rest of the world. Unfortunately for them, the conversations were recorded. I didn't just deal directly with more than a dozen corrupt BCCI bankers, I dealt with bankers in other institutions as well. Sadly, the story was the same.
Nathan's probing questions during the webinar brought up issues I've never been asked about before. I hope you enjoy the webinar. You can find information about it at:
On November 10, I will present keynotes to attendees of both the Europe and North America ComplyAdvantage virtual annual conferences, followed by a separate Q & A for both venues. I'll share insights about the minds of launderers who service clients with all types of money seeking secrecy from governments. We'll explore the role of those that participate in black money markets around the world, and explain why certain geographic areas and businesses carry the greatest money laundering risk today. I look forward to sharing ideas and answering tough questions.
