From Medellín to Cali: Undercover Operative Robert Mazur Shares His Insights on Drug Money Laundering and Corruption

Former Agent Reveals How Cartels Launder Drug Money

Robert Mazur, a seasoned government agent with extensive experience in drug-money laundering cases, shares his fascinating journey as an undercover operative. In Operation C-Chase, Mazur successfully infiltrated the infamous Medellín cartel by assuming the identity of a wealthy businessman named Robert Musella. This allowed him to establish connections with key figures within the cartel such as Pablo Escobar’s lawyer Gonzalo Mora and trafficker Roberto Alcaino. The Medellín cartel was a major player in the cocaine trade, estimated to have supplied over 80% of the cocaine shipped to the US at its peak.

In his second undercover operation, Mazur took on the identity of an Italian American businessman named Robert Baldasare to expose money-laundering networks associated with the Cali cartel. Led by figures like Gilberto Rodríguez Orejuela, Miguel Rodríguez Orejuela, Pacho Herrera, and José Santacruz Londoño, this powerful organization controlled a significant portion of the global cocaine supply at one time.

Today, Mazur continues to share his insights on money laundering, drug trafficking, and corruption through his company KYC Solutions.
