Arrests in Panama for $11.9 Million Dollar Cash Shipment

Crime & PunishmentLa Critica - Panama's Anti Drug Prosecutor confirmed yesterday the arrest in Panama of three people supposedly connected to the seizure of $11.9 million dollars confiscated in Mexico on 8 March 2008. Prosecutor Jose Almengor said the arrests were made last week and the initial investigations by Mexican authorities alerted them on the possible destination of the money. Arrested were Nicaraguan Enrique Silva, Ashock Ladharan from India, and Panamanian Alcibiades Moreno. In addition to these prisoners who have been charged with laundering money from drug trafficking, Panamanian authorities are looking for another person of Indian nationality. According to the investigations, a company in the city of Toluca sent the money in a container destined for the company M. Silva Internactional in the Colon Free Zone. Enrique Silva is the president of that company.

Editor's Comment: The drugs go North, the money comes South. In this case there was almost $12 million dollars in a container destined for the Colon Free Zone in Panama. Just be aware that if someone in Panama has a few bags full of cash there's a good chance it could come from drug trafficking.

El fiscal José Almengor explicó que las detenciones se llevaron a cabo la semana pasada, después de que las primeras investigaciones de las autoridades mexicanas alertaron sobre el posible destino del dinero.

Los detenidos fueron el nicaragüense Enrique Silva, Ashock Ladharan, de India, y el panameño Alcibiades Moreno, precisó el funcionario. Además de los detenidos, a quienes se les atribuyen cargos por lavado de dinero procedente del tráfico de drogas, las autoridades panameñas buscan a otra persona de nacionalidad india.

Según las investigaciones, una empresa en la ciudad de Toluca envió en un contenedor el dinero con destino a la compañía M. Silva Internacional, de la Zona Libre. Enrique Silva es el presidente de esa compañía.
