U.S. blacklists Colombia drug trafficker associates

WASHINGTON,  (Reuters) – The U.S. Treasury yesterday  said it tightened sanctions on the financial network of two top  Colombian drug traffickers, blacklisting 20 individuals and 25  business enterprises.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control named the entities as  specially designated narcotics traffickers because of their  ties to Daniel Barrera Barrera, known as “El Loco Barrera,” and  Pedro Oliviero Guerrero Castillo, known as “Cuchillo.”

The Treasury says the two, previously designated in March,  are among the most wanted drug traffickers in Colombia today.
