I’ve never before spoken publicly about what I did during the years after the conclusion of my undercover assignment detailed in THE INFILTRATOR. Today I agreed to share a few things about that experience with those that previously followed the story of my life undercover as a money launderer with the Medellin Cartel and the Bank of Credit & Commerce International (BCCI) that was portrayed on the silver screen by Bryan Cranston.
Few in the public know that, 3 years after the world learned that money launderer Robert Musella was actually a federal undercover agent, I was recruited to carry out another long-term covert assignment. I was asked to infiltrate Colombia’s Cali Cartel and to attempt to gather evidence that would lead to the prosecution of their money launderers.
Over time, I created another false identity and assumed a 2 ½ year undercover role that embedded me in Panama’s business world. If the insights I learned from launderers for the Medellin Cartel earned me an MBA in money laundering, the money men tied to the Cali Cartel shared insights that enabled me to achieve my PhD. Their techniques were brilliant, innovative and global.
This second journey was different, very different, because it involved corruption within my own department that nearly got me killed. The evidence I gathered most importantly led to our outing a mole in U.S. law enforcement that endangered the lives of many.
Through the link below you can hear one of the first interviews I’ve done about my covert return to the underworld after the events of THE INFILTRATOR. I'd like to know from you whether you think this untold story should be publicly shared.
DANGEROUS UNDERWORLD SAFE HARBORS IN THE AMERICAS

It was an honor this week to be one of the keynote speakers at the amazing True North 2019 conference in Waterloo, a city in Ontario that has become an important part of Canada's Silicon Valley North. I got the unique opportunity to present to more than 2,500 attendees, the greatest majority of whom are industry leaders in the development of Artificial Intelligence, data mining, and new technology. The theme of the conference focused on the fact that great innovation involves accepting and addressing great responsibility. I shared insights about some of the latest global money laundering techniques, including the impact that marketers of Cryptocurrencies and Mobile Money are having on the movement of illicit funds around the globe. It was an honor to be part of a lineup of well-known speakers that included American political commentator, and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman. Here's a short video about Day 1 of the conference: https://www.facebook.com/RobertMazurOfficial/notifications/?section=activity_feed&subsection=mention&target_story=S%3A_I257701931013485%3A2177482939035365

While I was recently in Stockholm, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by radio host Lydia Capolicchio. Lydia and her team produced the podcast at the link below. She asked insightful questions, not only about money laundering and the underworld, but about the human experience of living a double life. When you go to the link, click on the radio button that has "spela" on it, which means "play" in Swedish. It's below 'Robert Mazur - The Infiltrator'. The interview is in English:
Another article from the media in Luxembourg. This one is from Duke Magazine. At least it is in English, and it offers a few short thoughts about what's happening today in the money laundering world. Let's all keep fighting the good fight. The good guys need all the help they can get:
