US Sanctions 7 Mexican Businesses for Drug Ties

WASHINGTON, DC — The United States has announced sanctions on seven Mexican businesses for presumed links to a drug trafficking gang called Los Cuinis.

The Treasury Department says the sanctions target four agricultural businesses and a biotech consulting firm in the Guadalajara region; a Mexico City tourism concern; and a company called Status Administrativo that is tied to a hotel seized by Mexican authorities last year.

Treasury says in a statement that all seven are linked to Los Cuinis’ alleged capo, Abigael Gonzalez Valencia, his wife or other associates.

The sanctions announced Monday freeze any of the entities’ assets that are under U.S. jurisdiction and bar Americans from entering into transactions with them.

Last December, Treasury sanctioned two Mexican newspapers and an air taxi company for purported ties to Los Cuinis.
