By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 13 –  Juan Marcos Matos Ruiz of Venezuela was charged with money laundering but had his case again and again "continued in the interest of justice." 

       On May 13, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed S. Rakoff held a charge of plea proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

Matos Ruiz said he is 53 years old, not a US citizen but a legal resident.

The complaint describes laundering not only of gambling proceeds but also proceeds of corrupt Brazilian officials. There are alsor references to China.

The lead defendant in the conspiracy is bailed out to an apartment on East 54th Street in Manhattan.

  Judge Rakoff asked where the bank that was used was.

The AUSA said she wasn't sure, but she though on Madison Avenue.

 So in Manhattan, Judge Rakoff said. He accepted the plea.

The overall case is USA v. Chocron, et al., 20-mj-2246 (Rakoff)
