The modified peace agreement, signed recently between the Government of Colombia, and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-Peoples' Army (FARC-EP), is said to provide that victim compensation will be funded through payment from FARC assets earned from narcotics trafficking and kidnapping. The FARC reportedly has earned billions of dollars from its criminal enterprises.
Given that Panama's openly money laundering banks have, for decades, served as the conduit into which FARC narco-dollars have flowed, and abrupt, unusual, or extremely large, funds transfer, from these banks, during the months of November and December, could very well be FARC wealth. It has long been expected that some greedy FARC senior leaders will swiftly conceal wealth that they control, to prevent it from being used for rehabilitation, and compensation, of the heirs of Colombians killed by FARC action against civilians.
Greed may also be a factor; some FARC may decide to divert a portion of their Communist organization's wealth to their personal accounts, reasoning that the theft will not be discovered, in the confusion of FARC demobilization and disarmament, after a peace treaty is ratified and implemented.
In any event, keep your eyes peeled for any suspicious transfers, from Panama's dirty banks (you should know who they are by now), and decline any transactions before they are processed, automatically alerting the most senior compliance officers at your bank, to your actions.
