United States Issues Sanctions on Guatemalan Drug Lord’s Children and Companies

On November 14, the U.S. Treasury Department announced sanctions on alleged drug lord Waldemar Lorenzada Lima’s two children and eight companies because he is considered the link between Colombian mafias and Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel.

Ovaldino Lorenzana, 44, and Marta Julia Lorenzana, 36, were officially charged as drug dealers, for which all their assets in the United States may be seized.

American nationals cannot do business with them or their enterprises without facing criminal charges.

Waldemar Lorenzana Lima, age 72, aka “El Patriarca,” is under arrest in Guatemala with his son Eliu Elixander, both awaiting extradition to the United States, confirmed the Guatemalan justice last August.

The Lorenzana family comes from Zacapa, east of Guatemala, where they have established a wide network of companies and personnel to manage Colombian cocaine before sending it to the United States.



It's obvious that it's okay they do that to them. Children shouldn't be mistreated
