Proceeds from the sale of illegal drugs and other trafficking activities are the life-blood of transnational organized crime.  The process of “laundering” this money is a critical element in the criminal enterprise, but governmental efforts to disrupt the flow of dirty money have had mixed results.

A briefing was held by three experts in the field of law enforcement, organized crime, and money laundering about the latest trends in money laundering and recent efforts to disrupt the flow of dirty money to TOCs.

Featuring:

Terry Goddard, former Attorney General of Arizona and a leader in efforts to disrupt the use of wire transfers by criminal organizations in Mexico.

Eric L. Olson, Associate Director of the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute and co-editor of “Shared Responsibility: U.S.-Mexico Policy Options for Confronting Organized Crime.”  

Peter Fritch, Partner, Fusion GPS, and former Wall Street Journal bureau chief for Mexico and Latin America
