United States put sanctions on businesses and individuals linked to Los Cuinis and CJNG

Translated by Otis B Fly-Wheel for Borderland Beat from a Proceso article

Subject Matter: Los Cuinis and CJNG
Recommendation: No prior subject matter knowledge required


Reporter: Proceso Redaction
The Treasury Department of the United States listed four businesses and three Mexican citizens for their links to the CJNG. The USA authorities made reference to Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, the leader of Los Cuinis, and his associates as " special designated narco traffickers", as conforming with the law of designation of foreign heads of narco trafficking (Kingpin Law).

In the communication they detailed the imposition of sanctions against these organizations allied to narco trafficking on the 8th of April of 2015, together with their heads.

With these antecedents, all that these individuals posses are under the jurisdiction of the United States are frozen from today, and that USA citizens are prohibited from carrying out transactions with the businesses and individuals nominated.




Among the sanctioned are Operadora Los Famosos SA de CV, a company that carries out business with Kenzo Sushi. This restaurant, located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, is the successor to Mizu Sushi Lounge.

OFAC appointed Mizu Sushi Lounge on September the 17th, 2015, for providing material support to the CJNG narco trafficking activities.

The office also today appointed Alfonso Corona Romero and Edgar Alfonso Corona Robles, father and son, owners of Operadora Los Famosos, where Corona Romero and Corona Robles serve as Straw Men for Los Cuinis and CJNG.

They also underlined that trader "Trade Clear SA", which has commercial dealings with Bake and Kitchen has links to Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, who was also appointed today.

Jennifer Beaney Camacho Cazares, who was previously appointed, is the wife of Gonzalez Valencia and holds a key position in the business "Trade Clear SA".

Also, Salime Abouzaid El Bayeh was sanctioned, because she runs Bake and Kitchen and also manages other activities in representation of Abigael Gonzalez Valencia.

Abouzaid Bayeh previously worked for the aforementioned Mizu Sushi Lounge and held a position in the Unomasuno newspaper, which was designated on December the 16th of 2015, for providing support to the drug trafficking activities of Los Cuinis and Abigael Gonzalez Valencia.

Another of the sanctioned companies is Grupo de Alta Especialidad Faramaceutica SA, a distributor or pharmaceuticals in Guadalajara, which is jointly owned by Abouzaid El Bayeh.

The fourth company sanctioned was Operadora de Reposterias and Restaurante SA, a cake business located next to Bake and Kitchen in Plaza Los Tules.

Silvia Romina Sanchez Carlon, who was previously appointed in part to act in the name of Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, is co-owner of this business.

In addition to these delegations, OFAC identified Cabanas La Loma as a new name for the previously designated company known as Las Flores Cabanas.

This company leases cabins in Tapalapa, Jalisco, and was designated on September 17th, 2015 for providing material support to the CJNG drug trafficking activities.

Based on an investigation conducted by the Los Angeles Division of the DEA, in March of 2014 a  federal grand jury for the District of Columbia indicted Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes and Abigael Gonzalez Valencia or various narcotics related charges, including being the leaders of an active criminal enterprise.

Gonzalez Valencia was captured by the Mexican authorities in late February 2015 but Oseguera remains a fugitive.

Since June of 2000, more than 2000 businesses and individuals have been designated under the kingpin act for their involvement in international narcotics trafficking.

  1. I dunno how these guys would be linked.they most likely own those business they work in total discretion and have there own secret language to communicate. Trust me they dont not handle themselves. They grew into the loopholes of the law and and dance thats why they have made so far. I understand the frustration but there case will get thrown out.i have seen a 30 yrs sentence even reduce to 3. Facts instead of conspiracy sounds like a witch hunt to me.

    2. At @10:49am keep your political crap to yourself I don't think anyone cares either way how you feel about democrats or Trump while reading this articles at least I don't

    3. Trump matters to cartel members tho, so politics, do have a say in here.
      Most cartel members don't have a problem with Trump. As his wall will increase Drug prices for more profits for both Americans and Mexicans

      Delete
    4. @7:02 Do we have your permission to discuss the greed of the 2 major political parties in Mexico or do those facts hurt your feelings as well. Trump as inherently a huge problem. The fuel to fire that Fast & Furious added, the DACA executive action and battling against a Decomcrate party that demanded an end to illegal immigrants under both Obama (the Senator) & Clinton (President.) No county in the world allows illegals to just show up & 'tada' you can have full citizenship & full rights. The established a Democratic Party isn't interested in the betterment of the lives of illegal immigrants. They are pandering for uneducated votes. They don't wish for a wise voter base they wish to promote fear & division so society depends on them to 'save' & provide all the services verse empowering them to be self sufficient. Less gov't would mean less jobs for them.
      God be with the people of Mexico in the wake of the Quake.

    5. The case will get thrown out? What case? This is an OFAC designation, not a criminal prosecution. There's no case to throw out and no sentence to reduce.

      The companies are Mexican entities and can only be touched by Mexican authorities. This simply means that any American entity, including banks, that does business with these companies will be sanctioned up to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

      Most banks screen out anyone on the OFAC list. The list contains terrorist entities and such, so banks are very wary of being tied to them. This is going to make it much harder for them to launder money and do business. They'll have to turn to European banks. Even Euro banks are clamping down though. Veon just paid $795 million in penalties to the Dutch and US governments for paying bribes in Uzbekistan.

    6. 10:58 mexican undocumented "illegal aliens" do not owe 1.5 billion dollars to wall street or have laundered unknown amounts of drug trafficking and russian money, have not been fined hundreds of millions of dollars for that money laundering, or gone bankrupt 4 or 5 times or left their investors holding the shitty end of the stick for corporate losses, we do not spend political contributions to buy fake TIMES covers or portraits for our casinos or steal the charitable contributions to pay our defense lawyers trying to keep our arses from prison or impeachment...
      --we also do not need the permission of CULEROS to do as we see fit in mexico or the US or anywhere in the world.

    7. AMERICAN AND OTHER BANKS LIKE HSBC, BCCI, DEUTSCHE BANK OF CYPRUS, GERMANY THE us OR RUSSIA, ALPHA BANK AND OTHERS, they all know how to handle their money laundering, and they know when somebody not aligned is getting too much money, like the mexican narcos, pablo escobar, the rodriguez orejuelas, manuel noriega, they latinos do not have a right to be piggybacking their chingaderas with the real owners of drug trafficking, that the only reason la chapa, el guero plama, el benja and juan garcia abrego or cardenas guillen are in prison, getting too much money for themselves.

    8. To be honest nothing gonna happen to them. they pose on the front cover so people stop looking.they are realizing the idolization of there legendary pass,is and are and still making them too popular. Judges paid towns and mayors paid police and army paid everything is paid for. Errors are planned news is aswell this shi t is getting to serious and real people cant get enough of it. I know trust me the relation come in my bloodline.

  3. 2000 businesses and individuals liked to cjng?.. Cjng is really a cartel that has Jalisco on lock, from hotels resorts to small and big businesses. Now that a mexican cartel is rich as hell the U.S wants to take their money. If cjng goes down, it will create a war zone in all the plazas they have now, specially in jalisco. It's big business to get the Mexican capos and take millions or even billions from them but it still won't change a thing in Mexico.Even El Cartel De Snitches that are U.S informants get Fudged from their assets and businesses, like chapos g string company lol but it doesn't make any diference in Mexico where the drug related murders are sky high or in the U.S where people continue to get higher than the sky and die from O.D..

    1. Jalisco Guadalajara has always been where all big cartels have business and companies and their families Cjng are not the only ones or first ones to do so. And all the cartels are snitches not just one or the ones you don't like because you cheerlead one!

    2. Think they mean 2000 total, not for just CJNG.

    3. They don't own any plazas shit not even guadalajara. They are fighting for a piece of the narcomenudeo and you cjng d1ckriders get the confused with they own a plaza. They dont have TJ on lock, they dont have baja shit they're being chased out of baja last I heard and now they show up in Nuevo Laredo lol thats the nail in their soon to be coffin. Literally all they have is shit towns in Jalisco for plazas they cant stop Sinaloa cartel from laundering their money in Jalisco FOH

    4. Read it better 2000 buisnesses have been placed on that list since 2000 the year. Of course the US won't allow anyone to get a start if they aren't paying them anything noticed how none of these companies are even in the US? The Us made and makes its money threw genocide, murder and theft no one else can make wealth in anyway that the US doesn't want them to unless its their people.

    10. cjng controls more of jalisco than cds controls sinaloa, there may be SMALL cells of zetas or cds but not a WHOLE cartel. cartel de sinaloa should be called cartel sur de sinaloa because thats the only part they control, beltranes control the north. facts son

    13. 2:45 ZEMBLA TV has some foreign companies and corporations that involve a lot of dubious deals in the US and all over the world, all involved heavily with "american assets", gangsters mafiosos and businessmen, one of them has more money than all the mexican "cartels"

    14. @4:17 WHO CARES ABOUT OWNING PLAZAS LMFAO It's about manufacturing a product and retailing the product!! These Cats have been doing that for YEARS. Los cuinis and MANY MORE LIKE THEM ARE THE REASON METH IS WIDE SPREAD. And it had NOTHING to do with the cartels.back in the 90's here in California from the 559 to the 209 where I'm from NOBODY gave a sh!t about chapo or any big cartel in Mexico these guys had more money than chapo even back then! And guess what NOBODY was murdering nobody! Everybody was just making ALOT OF FUKIN MONEY! They called the 209 the Meth capital of the world. Don't believe me just do some research. When the Federal government put major restrictions on purchasing Pseudoephedrine in the USA that's when the Cartels started messing with meth. And that's when the Cartels REALLY STARTED GETTING POWERFULL.

      Delete
    15. 9:51 plazas dont mean nothing? are you serious? lol if thats the case why did chapo want tijuana and juarez so badly? conyrolling plazas makes it easy to set up shop and people. The ports and border towns are key to transport and distribute, the more plazas the easier and better for cartels. thought you knew about cartels, all you know about is about that wack a$$ cali meth slums your from, mexico works alot diferent bro

      Delete
    16. Lol you missing my point. ITS ABOUT MANUFACTURING NOT RETAIL ON THE STREETS OF BORDER TOWNS. U think they give a sh!t who owns the plaza?? NO there still gonna cross there product and they will still sell there product simple as that

    3. Right again mi Amigo....The names change, but the story stays the same...Sad...it's gonna get worse...the US gov is cracking down on the drs for prescribing opiates..so the 3 + million oxy addicts are gonna get cut off and go straight to heroin...somehow, some way the cycle needs to be broken...it's to the point where maybe the crazy Filipino prez, may have the answer...eradicate all involved in drugs...users, dealers, bosses, and corrupt LE, and gov officials. I believe if the US and Mexico get together and go after the Jefes....no arrests...straight up shoot on sight or bomb their known hideouts...anyone in their company know the deal and risk, and are unfortunate collateral damage. Take em down Escobar style...or Arturo, or even better H2 style..Start shredding the bosses..Absolutely no arrests...and the Chinese illegals should be shot on sight to....they're coming to infiltrate our country...Mexicans should be allowed to get work visas...and as long as they follow laws, and obtain citizenship, no problem. Canada too. But foreign national outside of North American countries should have to go through rigorous hoops to enter US, especially countries that are communist, and or adverseries of us and our neighbors. Those countries all are restrictive for us to visit. Also illegal aliens caught unlawfully entering our country should be shot on sight. Enter legally, or be shot as an enemy of the state. I know our nation was built on immigration....but the world has changed. The people of Mexico and the US need to stand up and fight our corrupt governments....Kill the head of the snake ( gov) and the body will perish, and be eaten by the animals it once preyed upon. China is the big brother behind the cartels. They supply the material and technology. The US and Mex, need to tie that head off soon. Cut out China, and Mexico, won't be able to make enough dope.....drastic times call for drastic measures....it's time for population control....let the dregs of our societies fall.

      I can see your frustration my friend. Times have changed in our world. With globalization and political shifts around the globe. One thing is definitely needed (order). Where laws are abided and tranquility are met.
      Times have changed my friend. However, due to overwhelming population by mankind, climate change and political unstableness. Migration will always be an issue worldwide.
      I truly believe in strong borders. But at what cost?
      Many are good people fleeing countries of disarray. With no hope nor future to believe in.
      Immigration enforcement is necessary but not at an extreme measure.
      Killings of innocent people will not make us better people. Moreover, a country of opportunities which this was founded on.
      Furthermore, Laws have to be applied to those who do not bear the same fundamental values and interests of our nation.

      And yes I do feel strong of those who just continue and wish harm to our values. Stiffer sentencing guidelines and the death penalty if necessary.
      Wish you well my friend. And as always, a pleasure to have a constructive perspective and opinion of the issues of interests and importance.
      We both want change. Let's just hope change comes in a good way!

      Saludos.

    6. mexicans were not violating the US borders until some US masters of deceit decided drug trafficking via mexico was in the cards, because the vietnam war was getting too old and they forgot to have something to show for it, in the early 70s, but the war had been going on since before Kennedy's inauguration, with the french foreign legionnaires losing the war to Uncle Ho Chi Minh, there were even protests in mexico before tlaltelolco in 68, the mexican migration to the US had been goin on for a while, designed by AMERICANS, NOT BY MEXICANS.

    7. 4:04. Amen brother! I am gradually noticing more enlightened and more well read comments here and thank you for being one to espouse them! The Mexicans have seen this for years as they bear the brunt of our drug feened society. These nitwits that talk about a Mexican revolution don't realize that the Mexicans should be revolting against America for freely selling the arms and ammo that ruin so many families just so Americans can get their recreational or addicted fix! Americans don't give a flying flip about Mexican citizens if it's gonna interrupt their American freedom to buy drugs at every corner bar in every city across the USA. Lol...these windbags talk about narcos in Mexico when there's hundreds of thousands of middle men and millions of retail distributors here in the good ole US of A (not even counting the licensed dealers aka doctors)

    1. 8:38 the mexican narco-government can not make its own life hard with more problems, but it ie easy for the US to sanction other narcos instead of their own, because "their own" give them political contributions, in mexico those are still called kickbacks, or mordidas, mexican politicians still are very innocent and ignorant.

      Delete
    2. The Mexico government isn't going to cut off the hand that feeds them. They'd rather the US be the bad guys. The reason why Mexico has a problem with America's stance on illegal immigration is because they know if the US tightens up, it could put a dent in the cartels. There are no real men in the Mexican government. Just patsies.
