US SANCTIONS AGAINST BUSINESSES LINKED TO MEXICAN DRUGS CARTELS

On 12 March, the US State Department issued a news release advising that it had designated 4 Mexican businesses pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act) due to their links to the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG) and the Los Cuinis Drug Trafficking Organization (Los Cuinis), 2 of the most powerful drug trafficking organisations in Mexico.  Designated were –

  • International Investments Holding S.A. de C.V.;
  • GBJ de Colima, S.A. de C.V., a gas station company located in Villa de Alvarez, Colima;
  • Corporativo Sushi Provi, S. de R.L. de C.V.; and
  • Master Reposterias Y Restaurantes, S.A. de C.V.

In addition to these designations, OFAC identified Cabanas La Loma en Renta and Cabanas La Loma Tapalpa, 2 new names for a cabin rental business located in Tapalpa, Jalisco that was designated in 2015 for providing material assistance to CJNG drug trafficking activities.
