In view of the new challenges faced by regulated entities in the prevention of crimes underlying Money Laundering, as well as the Financing of the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction, the Panama Banking Association is pleased to inform those attending the XXVIII Hemispheric Congress that we will have the presence of General Oscar Adolfo Naranjo Trujillo as Keynote Speaker.

On this occasion, the keynote speaker's words will have the focus of a person who understands:

 

  • The risks faced by the new politicians,

  • The danger of underlying crimes such as terrorist financing, drug trafficking, human trafficking, among others,

  • The realities of the people involved in organized crime, as he was commander of the Bolivar Police Department, the Special Operations Command, the Directorate of Intelligence and Counterintelligence Police, the Cali Police.

  • The danger of those who combat the crime of drug traffickers and money launderers, as he participated in Operation Apocalypse in which he killed drug trafficker Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha, a member of the Medellin Cartel, as well as other intelligence operations that ended with the death of Pablo Escobar, capo of the Medellin Cartel.

 

Understanding the risks and applying proportionate mitigants requires various sources of information and expertise. 

That is why the Panamanian Banking Association wants its attendees to be fed with information and experience by a person who, in addition to the above, was Director of the National Police of Colombia and Vice President of Colombia and plenipotentiary negotiator of the Government in the peace process with the FARC-EP.

The Hemispheric Congress strengthens its duty to add value to the expertise of all its attendees.
