On 17 September, the US Treasury Department designated five businesses in Jalisco state, Mexico under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (“Kingpin Act”) on the ground that they are controlled by the Cartel De Jalisco Nueva Generación (“CJNG”) network. CJNG had been designated under the Kingpin Act in April 2015. The businesses include a sushi restaurant with locations in Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara, a cabin rental business located in Tapalpa, and a tequila producer, an advertising company, and an agricultural company located in Guadalajara. All five businesses are accused of providing financial support to CJNG’s narcotics activities.
