Hi all. Below is a link to an article I wrote that is a "lead in" to a white paper that outlines what I think is the best way nations of the world can meaningfully identify and attack real money launderers. Many thanks to KYC360 for publishing the article and the white paper. Unfortunately, I'm not certain that governments and the central banks of the world have the will to follow the plan. I hope I'm wrong about that. If you click on the link below, it will take you to the article. Near the end of the article, you'll find a link to download the white paper. Keep fighting the good fight:
By Robert Mazur Testimony in the ongoing New York federal trial of “El Chapo” Guzman offered a repeat of facts heard in hundreds of similar trials since the prosecution of Al Capone. Despite that blaring reminder, governments, including the one now prosecuting El Chapo, appear to turn a deaf ear...
Hi everyone. I had the privilege of sharing my thoughts with a radio show today concerning the problems we face from the hundreds of billions in corrupting fortunes created by the drug cartels every year. As I mentioned during the show, a whitepaper I've written on this topic will be published this week and I will share that, but here's a link to our discussion today about the problems on the border and the threat we face from the massive drug cartels that invade democracies around the world. Very best regards to all:
I was invited to be interviewed this weekend on a syndicated radio show about the current state of affairs in the drug and money laundering world. I realize that my view of the involvement of certain sectors of the international banking community in the success of cartels isn't necessarily shared by others, but we truly need to take a very hard look at how governments deal with this problem. Deferred Prosecution Agreements, fines and probation is not the answer to developing a conscience in the financial sector, and strictly attacking the supply side of the illegal drug trade isn't either. Education, treatment and economic opportunity is so important to deflecting the demand side of illegal drugs. Providing that safety net to fellow citizens will be costly, but in the long run, it is far better to pay for education rather than incarceration. Here's a link to our discussion:
Last week I had the honor of presenting to dignitaries from the Near East and North Africa who attended an International Visitor Leadership Program hosted by the U.S. Department of State and World Partnerships. World Partnerships is a worldwide leadership network comprised of 4,800 current and emerging leaders in 190 countries who are dedicated to building a more peaceful, just and connected world. I had the privilege of speaking at length and sharing ideas with law enforcement officers, prosecutors, judges and intelligence officers from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, U.A.E., Morocco, Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia. We shared ideas and strategies that will hopefully lead to more effective prosecutions of money launderers, drug traffickers and those corrupted by global criminal organizations. Building bridges and friendships globally through transparently sharing ideas and experience is critical to fighting the good fight against organized crime.

Hi Infiltrator followers. More than 1,000 people read part 1 of my 2 part article published by Thomson Reuters. I'm really glad to see the interest. Here's a link to Part 2. I hope you find it interesting. It tells a small piece of the story about how "special clients" from the underworld are catered to by segments of the international banking world. I received an e-mail from a representative of the Department of Justice familiar with this case. That DOJ attorney said my articles were "well done", so they take no exception to the content of the articles:
