OFAC SANCTIONS REGIONAL COMMANDER OF MEXICO’S CJNG IN COORDINATION WITH DoJ AND STATE DEPARTMENT ACTIONS

On 14 April, the US Treasury announced that OFAC had identified Audias Flores Silva as a significant foreign narcotics trafficker pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act.  Flores Silva (aka “Jardinero”) is one of the Cartel de Jalisco Nueva Generacion’s (CJNG) regional commanders in control of large portions of CJNG territory along the Pacific coast of Mexico, including the state of Nayarit.  CJNG is described as a violent Mexican drug trafficking organization responsible for trafficking a significant proportion of the fentanyl and other deadly drugs that enter the US.
