The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has sanctioned four individuals and four businesses under the Kingpin Act for their participation in a Guatemalan drug trafficking organization. The sanctioned are:
Marllory Dadiana Chacon Rossell (Guatemala)
Jorge Andres Fernandez Carbajal (Honduras)
Hayron Eduardo Borrayo Lasmibat (Guatemala)
Mirza Silvana Hernandez De Borrayo (Guatemala)
Bingoton Millonario (Guatemala)
Revoluciones Por Minuto Aceleracion S.A. (Guatemala)
Andrea Yari S.A. (Panama)
Fer’Seg S.A (Panama)
Chacon Rossel is charged with supplying Mexican drug cartels with thousands of kilograms of cocaine per month. She is also accused of laundering tens of millions of dollars per month, making her the largest money launderer in Guatemala, according to Treasury.
Chacon Rossel is described as the leader of the organization and “one of the most prolific narcotics traffickers in Central America”, while her husband Fernandez Carbajal was tasked with providing logistical support. The other two individuals operated the two Guatemala-based businesses, while Fernandez Carbajal was in charge of the Panamanian companies.
“Marllory Chacon’s drug trafficking activities and her ties to the Mexican drug cartels make her a critical figure in the narcotics trade,” said OFAC Director Adam J. Szubin.
According to its Facebook page, Bingoton Millonario is a “family lottery” which uses its proceeds to benefit maternal-infant health and education for low-income Guatemalans.
