Panacea International Ltd. is registered as an offshore company by Offshore Companies House Ltd., whose services are, in reality, provided by CCP, of Copthall, which is reportedly under Russian ownership. In truth and in fact, the individuals answering the OCH number admit that it is connected to CCP. Who says Dominica is not a dodgy tax haven, providing a safe harbor for the usual suspects ?
The Karner network moves drugs into, and through, Malaysia, and it requires the services of a number of offshore financial centers to aid and assist in laundering its profits. Alireza Monfared, who resided in Malaysia, where he was illegally selling sanctioned Iranian oil, as well as committing a number of other financial crimes there, was probably the only "Malaysian" with a Dominican diplomatic passport, which allowed him inspection-free transit, through international airports. Remember, when he relocated to Dominica, he arrived with massive amounts of baggage; cash or monetary instruments, most likely.
Monfared has become my primary suspect, as a facilitator of the movement of Malaysian drug cash, into Dominica. He spent a lot of time in Labuan, Malaysia's offshore financial center, where the high balances that he banked, in connection with the illicit Iranian oil sales, probably gave him the ability to move the proceeds of drug crime abroad.
