$8 million reward for information on human smuggling leaders of the Del Golfo clan

In coordination with today’s Department of Justice Anti-Smuggling Rewards (ASR) initiative, Secretary Blinken approved three reward offers under the Department of State’s Transnational Organized Crime Program (TOCRP) targeting key Clan del Golfo (CDG) leaders involved in human smuggling in the Darién region between Colombia and Panama. The three prize offers are as follows:

1) up to $2 million for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of any key CDG leader involved in human smuggling in Darién;

2) up to USD 1 million for information leading to the disruption of CDG’s financial mechanisms to finance, maintain or support human smuggling operations in Darién; AND

3) up to $5 million for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of any key CDG leader engaged in human smuggling in Darién by encouraging and procuring the entry of aliens into the United States, resulting in death, in violation of Title 8 of the United States Code, Sections 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) and 1324(a)(1)(B)(iv).

Today’s three awards support law enforcement efforts in Colombia, Panama and the United States to disrupt the exploitative treatment of migrants from around the world who seek to pass through the Darién region.
