CDMX.- The Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) froze 330 bank accounts linked to the Sinaloa Cartel, revealed the owner of the agency, Santiago Nieto.This blockade, of which he did not specify the amount, was recently carried out and was thanks to information provided by the Mexican government’s intelligence bodies.
Nieto, who participated in the conference «The Money Laundering and the 4T» at the College of Mexico, said that so far as the current Administration has blocked bank accounts for about one billion pesos that allegedly belonged to organized crime. This amount of resources, he stressed, represents one-fifth of the total money that has been frozen at the request of the FIU and totals just over five billion pesos. In addition to the Sinaloa Cartel, he exhibited, resources of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) and the Santa Rosa De Lima Cartel, the latter dedicated to the theft of fuel, have also been frozen.
Also, he added, a dedicated organization dedicated to lenocinia and human trafficking, whose leader was arrested in Cancun, Quintana Roo, and who used a website to promote the sexual services of victims has been financially affected.
