THE TRUTH LOOMS FOR PRESIDENT HERNANDEZ

During the sentencing of former Honduran Congressman Antonio "Tony" Hernandez, Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Laroche and U.S. District Court Judge Kevin Castel proclaimed that Juan Orlando Hernandez, the current President of Honduras, was a co-conspirator with his brother, "Tony", in a massive drug conspiracy. In a word, they defined the President as corrupt. They accused him of being the leader of a narco-state that endangers countless U.S. and Honduran Citizens. Read about it in my latest article published by the Tampa Bay Times:

LIFE IN PRISON + 30 YEARS FOR BROTHER OF HONDURAN PRESIDENT

Today, during a 2-hour hearing, U.S. District Court Judge P. Kevin Castel rendered his sentence on Juan Antonio "Tony" Hernandez, brother of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez. Just before revealing his decision, Judge Castel said, "Based on Juan Antonio Hernandez' free choice to engage in a life of trafficking over a 12-year period, which effected the lives and the people of the United States and in Honduras, a sentence of life imprisonment is richly deserved." He then sentenced Hernandez to life in prison on Count 1, a consecutive 30 year prison term on Count 2, A second concurrent life sentence on Count 3, and a concurrent 5 year sentence on Count 4. In effect, this means life in prison, plus 30 years. He also ordered that Hernandez forfeit $138.5 million, the amount he is calculated to have earned from his 12 years of drug trafficking.

During a lengthy presentation made by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Laroche, emphasis was made on behalf of the government that "Tony" Hernandez' partners in crime included none other than his brother, Juan Orlando Hernandez, the sitting President of Honduras.

By the end of the week, I'll report significant details about what was said by the Judge, the prosecutor, "Tony" Hernandez' counsel, and "Tony" himself, who spoke at length at his sentencing. The people of Honduras should have hope that the bright lights being cast by America on their unfortunate plight will awaken the world to the horror they live every day. We will not turn a blind eye.

SPEAK TRUTH TO THE NARCO-STATE

San Pedro Sula

On a steaming tropical day, 13-year-old Anthony went missing. His 7-year-old brother, Kenneth, was concerned. He pumped his legs like pistons, peddled his bike to a known gang area in hopes of rescuing his brother. The next day, the tragic truth was revealed. Anthony was found, shot in the head. Kenneth had been tortured and beaten to death with sticks and rocks.

Around the same time, a morgue in the town received 60 bodies, all victims of violence, piled in a heap, each wrapped in a brown plastic bag. The coroner wept as he shared his normal, corpses of children under 10 years old, sometime as young as 2. Welcome to San Pedro Sula, the murder capital of the world.

Learning these facts, I was driven to discover how this horrific carnage could be a daily event. Where are the authorities? Where is government? What are they doing while the country’s poor population is slaughtered?

I devoted nearly a month, researching what the ruling party and highest officials in Honduras were doing. I poured through dockets, case pleadings, transcripts, reports by journalists, and more. What I discovered would horrify anyone. There is an answer to why a child in Honduras is 10 times more likely to be killed than your child in the United States. I found my answer and offered it to Thomson Reuters for publication. I’m grateful that they printed the story today. Here’s the link:

THE INFILTRATOR: A Conversation with Robert Mazur

On February 9, I was a guest on the "Forletta Investigates" Apple Podcast, a show hosted by decorated former DEA Special Agent Larry Forletta. Larry posted our discussion, entitled "The Infiltrator: A Conversation with Robert Mazur", at the link below.

If you want to get a sense of what it's like to prepare for and carry out a long-term undercover mission as a money launderer, I didn't hold any punches and explained what it was like for me to travel that journey twice, once for 2 years as money launderer Robert Musella who worked his way inside the Medellin Drug Cartel and the Bank of Credit & Commerce International (BCCI), and a second time for 2 1/2 years as money launderer Robert Baldasare, who infiltrated the Cali Drug Cartel and money launderers based in Panama.

To all of those who follow me on social media, please keep fighting the good fight in the AML war. What you do every day makes a big difference in many lives.
