From Pais interview :
Q. How is it possible that Ovidio Guzmán [El Chapo Guzmán’s son] does not have an investigation open?
A. We have frozen Ovidio’s accounts and 330 people linked to the cartel and we have filed the complaint with the Prosecutor’s Office. 

We have also found peculiar things. Ismael El Mayo Zambada’s sisters won millions of pesos in a casino. Nobody wins millions of pesos in a casino, so it seems to me a good indicator that we are in the presence of money laundering. It is also already denounced. I hope it is processed quickly.
“We have two super-national cartels and it is important to stop their operation, “he concluded.

They all end up making transfers to Panama, the Virgin Islands, Monaco. We are still investigating the shipyard in Galicia.

Santiago Nieto (Mexico City, 1973) is one of the star officials of the Andrés Manuel López Obrador government. He has managed to put himself under the spotlight despite being in charge of a division that should have discretion as the main distinctive: the Financial Intelligence Unit (of the Ministry of Finance). This office, created during the Vicente Fox government (2000-2006), has never had so much weight until now, when Morena’s anti-corruption agenda has been a stand out.
Nieto was an electoral prosecutor during the government of Enrique Peña Nieto, but he was struck down when he investigated the role of the construction company Odebrechtin the 2012 presidential campaign. The official today heads an apparatus that watches over the financial system for unusual movements that exceed $ 7,500.
In 2019 there were 9.8 million operations of this type. In Nieto’s office, on the table, there is a thick folder on this matter. The block is made up of schemes that show the flow of money from different countries or tax havens that end in the accounts of governors, administration officials, businessmen and relatives of drug traffickers.
