A touch of green for St. Patrick’s Day

17 March 2008

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.
