A touch of green for St. Patrick’s Day
Panamanian police arrested an Indian, Nicaraguan and Panamanian yesterday. They were the alleged recipients of 11.9 million dollar (yup… that $11,900,000 in greenbacks) found in the hold of a Liberian freighter while anchored in Manzanillo. Somebody’s ship didn’t come in.
The cash — destined to be laundered in Panama — was probably from narcotics sales in the United States and will be forfeited to the Mexican government. Too bad it wasn’t in Euros, but still a nice haul.
AND a note…
I may be tied up with moving this week and next. I have a few timely — but not time-sensitive — pieces set to post over the next week, for those who need a regular MexFiles fix.
