Fake Journalists Arrested
Insight Crime reports that seventeen Mexicans and one other person were arrested after entering Nicaragua posing as Televisa journalists. They were traveling in six Televisa vans. They claimed they were here to cover the trail of of Henry Fariñas.
Nicaraguan officials have arrested 18 individuals posing as Mexican journalists on assignment to cover a high-profile criminal trial in the Central American country, accusing them of criminal ties and seizing at least seven million dollars in hard currency.
The story is still unfolding but the kind of money involved sure makes this point to organized crime, most likely in Mexico.
