On 14th February, OFAC designated longtime Colombian criminal Javier Garcia Rojas (aka “Maracuya”) and 2 other Colombian nationals as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers (SDNT) for their links to previously designated SDNT, Jose Bayron Piedrahita Ceballos, and the Colombian criminal group La Oficina de Envigado (aka “La Oficina”). OFAC also designated 4 Colombian companies owned, controlled, or directed by the designated individuals. The designations are said to be for their attempts to undermine joint US-Colombian investigations into the criminal activities of La Oficina and Jose Bayron Piedrahita Ceballos. The 4 companies designated include 2 Medellin-based agricultural businesses owned by Javier Garcia Rojas (Agroconstrucciones Las Palmeras S.A.S. and MMAG Agricultural Global S.A.S.) as well as an investment company controlled by Ruth Garcia Rojas (Pinzon & Garcia S. En C.S.) based in Cali. Also designated is a small automotive repair business in Medellin called Euromecanica, owned by Wilton Cesar Hernandez Durango.
