Suspected Canadian trafficker vanishes in Guadalajara

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat TY Canadian "Papi" Post  from Vancouver Sun

A Metro Vancouver man missing in Mexico has been identified as a target in an investigation linked to the E-Pirate money laundering case.

Postmedia has learned that Rachid Ali Jalifi, 36, was reported missing to police after disappearing on a trip to Guadalajara, Mexico in late July.

Global Affairs Canada official John Babcock confirmed in an email Friday “that a Canadian citizen has been reported as missing in Mexico.”

“Canadian consular officials at Global Affairs are providing consular assistance to the family and are in touch with local authorities to gather more information,” he said. “Due to the provisions of the Privacy Act, no further information can be disclosed.”

Jalifi is a suspected drug trafficker who had been under investigation in B.C. at the time he vanished.

His name also surfaced in the Vancouver police investigation dubbed Project Trunkline targeting suspected drug traffickers believed to be laundering their money through Silver International — the illegal bank at the centre of the E-Pirate investigation.

Two subjects of the Trunkline case, David Bjorn Johnson and Michael Reg Whieldon, visited Jalifi’s West Pender apartment building while under police surveillance in August 2015.

Johnson entered Jalifi’s suite and left a short time later carrying a “weighted Urban Fare shopping bag,” court documents obtained earlier by Postmedia say.

“Mr. Jalifi has been involved in previous investigations by VPD and RCMP including being stopped on Nov, 13, 2012 in a taxicab in Vancouver B.C. with a duffel bag containing three kilogram bricks of cocaine and based on my training and experience I believe that Mr. Jalifi is involved in trafficking controlled substances,” the documents say.

While several people were arrested and some civil forfeiture lawsuits were filed by the B.C. government, no one was charged after the Truckline investigation or in a related Vancouver police case called Project Tar.

Postmedia earlier reported that Project Tar target Richard Yen Fat Chiu was found stabbed and burned in Colombia in June. Chiu, a well-known B.C. drug trafficker for two decades, was also suspected of using Silver International to launder millions of drug proceeds.

Jalifi has no drug-related charges or convictions in B.C., but he was sentenced to 90 days in jail in 2014 for assault in Kelowna three years earlier. Jalifi attacked two men after making homophobic remarks directed at them outside a nightclub in the Okanagan city. He appealed his conviction twice but lost both times in 2015 and 2016.

He had better luck fighting the B.C. Director of Civil Forfeiture in court.

The director filed a suit seeking the forfeiture of expensive jewelry that police found in a Vancouver condo they claimed was Jalifi’s during a raid in July 2014, including an 18-karat gold Rolex Datona men’s watch containing 32 diamonds, a Breitling Super Avenger watch with 745 diamonds, an 80-cm necklace in 14-karat white gold containing 117 diamonds, and a pair of 18-karat white gold stuff earrings each containing 16 diamonds.

The government agency alleged “the jewelry is derived directly or indirectly from unlawful activity, including trafficking of controlled substances.”

To support his claim, the director said the RCMP was investigating Jalifi for his link to “street-level drug trafficking” in 2013 and 2014 and executed the search warrant at the suite linked to him. Officers found a small amount of cocaine, MDMA pills, two fentanyl pills, one oxycontin pill, a scale with cocaine residue, shell casings for two types of firearms, seven BlackBerrys and other phones.

But Jalifi’s lawyer said his client did not live at the suite in question and “denies the jewelry was derived directly or indirectly from unlawful activity.”

He also said that Jalifi’s Charter rights were violated during the police investigation and that “it is clearly not in the interests of justice to permit forfeiture of the jewelry in whole or in part.”

In August 2017, there was a consent order to dismiss the director’s lawsuit and the jewelry was returned to Jalifi.

  1. Come on kid....This isn't the 70's/80's or even 90's when you could travel South to meet the plug with his protection and be safe.

    This is an entirely different era. I know a few white and black guys that went down to Michoacan or Sonora back around 2000-20005 and it was relatively safe under those circumstances as they were moving weight for them. But this is an ENTIRELY different era

    I used to go to Tiajuana when I was on vacation in San Diego but being a white guy who doesn't speak Spanish I WON'T DARE cross San Ysidro anymore.

    1. I knew a black guy from Atlanta that was caught in Zacatecas back in 2006 bringing merchandise from Michoacan to the states, he chose to serve his time in mexico i met him in el cereso de cieneguillas. He was a real nice guy. Hope he’s back in the staes. But yes back in those times it was sowed up by the narcos they had principals and the drug runners were left alone.

      You making it sound like people dont go down south to link with there connects on the regular..
      People are doing this on a daily basis.. all the work that's in Canada is coming from mex for the most part so the guys bringing it in are obviously in contact regularly..
      I'm not saying nobody gets plugged.. of course they do lots I have a personal friend that was killed last year in jalisco that this site has already made an article about.

  5. It is very easy to be a drug trafficker on Canada. You only have rival drug traffickers to fear. What happened to the three kilos of coke he had? Not charged with anything? I know a few of these guys in Vancouver and Calgary. On their home turf they are protected. When they go to Mexico and Colombia they disappear.

    3. Can confirm that my personal experience with drug traffickers both on a retail and city-tier distribution level is they are typically left to their own devices given they keep a low public profile. Over all organized crime and crime in general does quite well in Canada, for the most part the public seems to have a fairly lax attitude towards it. Police can't really be bothered to investigate things like construction site break ins for example. I know people who have suffered a loss of tens of thousands of dollars in equipment, only to have the police show up once or twice to look around and then tell you there's nothing they can do.

      Further, organized crime has a relatively easy time with money laundering in BC casinos for example, or controlling construction contracting in Quebec because of this. It isn't unknown for members of the Hells Angels to avoid murder charges either and for the most part people simply try to avoid talking about them or admitting we have a problem.

      Also similarly to Cartels in Mexico, gangs have been known to openly wear branded clothing. The Independent Soldiers are constantly caught with labeled paraphenalia, as are members of the United Nations gang in Vancouver.

      Anyways, my point is it isn't just easy to be a trafficker in Canada. It's easy to do a lot of things here, our police are not exactly equipped to handle organized crime at a national level.

  9. I think the reason we see more Canadian drug dealers than US drug dealers being killed in Mexico is because there are far less people of Mexican descent in Canada. Therefore you have a lot more white drug dealers from Canada going down to Mexico dealing direct with the cartels whereas in the US noone needs to do that because they use the Mexicans here as middlemen.

    3. I dont think it has much to do with white drug dealer going to mexico and more to do with Americans having lots of the cartels already in the US and the work available at a blink of an eye to them without having to bring it in, the Mexicans deal with bringing it through.
      Canadians, instead of going through an American middle man and paying extra money would rather cut out the American middle man and go straight to the cartel in Mexico. Or else they have to deal with the middle man in he states stepping on there shit and raising the prices.

  15. Such a shame, so often Canadian is followed by a Muslim name, bc Canada is full blown selling out its culture and people, but atleast Quebec stands up for their history and culture instead of fining people over made up gender words and paying terrorists millions bc they were locked up for being terrorists. Toronto will keep having truck attacks, bc even moderate Muslims hate all non Muslims and that evil book espouses that all lie and rid the world of Kaffirs. Just look up some polls of how Muslims in western countries fee after attacks, even the concert bomber in England, it will disgust and enrage you. How about the rate of genital mutilation and back alley sharia courts in Minneapolis, in the Somali invasion there. Now imagine such a pussy and moron like Trudeau tripping over himself to degrade Canada’s Anglo roots while acting like a 12 year girl from her first gender studies bullshit course, calling the world people kind, bc his dumbass brain doesn’t realize mankind is simply short for human kind. Atleast Mexico stays proud of Mexican heritage and are allowed to celebrate it.

  16. Rachid and his family are from Spain and speak spanish and of Moroccan descent. I believe his father is or was a diplomat. Also it is not uncommon for people to be caught with a few kilos in Vancouver and not be charged. I knew Rachid or as people called him "Sheed" back in the day. We stopped talking as he accused us of stealing $40000 from him. We are not thieves.

  17. He was a rata. Started snitchin 2012-13, caused a lot of damage to one of our networks in his area. Good thing el Senor Chapo put in place the compartmentalizing of our routes, middle men and handlers. You take out one, the other is already in place. We call it in English the substitute ORDER. You may be sitting in a Starbucks drinking coffee and not even realize your handler is sitting right next to you. Encrypted VOIP has been replaced with runners.

    1. If he had a local handler, as is often the case, why would they have called him all the way to Guadalajara to kill him? So as not to bring heat on the local representative?

      By their very nature a local handler knows just about everything there is to know about those they're in charge of.
