The atrocious narcotics turf conflicts that ate up Mexico for the previous decade have left over 100,000 citizens dead or gone missing. The bodies are often dismembered. The victims are frequently hanged from bridges. The decapitation is a common thing. Behind this violence are the infamous drug lobbies of the Mexico, which are now searching for new clients overseas.
Following fiscal crises in the West, the organization sought to focus on the lucrative new cocaine industry in Asia, as well as safeguard vital supply lines of drugs and chemicals for the thriving American meth industry. Their corporate as well as criminal presence in Hong Kong has been put bare in a fresh investigation by the South China Morning Post that found evidence of drug lobbies misusing the city for sourcing very important chemicals and money laundering.
One of the most powerful and brutal crime groups of Mexico, the Sinaloa cartel, has been utilizing banks and shell firms in the city for many years to launder billions in dirty money, according to the official Mexican documents and the interviews with the law enforcement sources. A pharmaceutical company based in Kowloon has also been caught up by special investigators in the Latin American nation for allegedly selling illegal chemicals that the cartels utilize to produce meth, which is also known as Ice.
The disclosures follow warnings in the previous month from a senior drugs official of the UN that the corruption in pharmaceutical industry in China was triggering the booming global meth trade.
