FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
(Tampa, FL) - Former DEA Undercover Agent, Robert Mazur spent five years risking his life to infiltrate the dirty banks behind Pablo Escobar's vicious Medellin Cartel. Following his mission, Mazur wrote a book called "The Infiltrator: My Secret Life Inside the Dirty Banks Behind Pablo Escobar's Medellin Cartel". The book is such a hit, that it's being made into a movie about his life.
The Tampa Tribune wrote an article about Mazur's career and his book as its being screened for a movie. To read about it visit http://duke1.tbo.com/content/2012/jun/26/MEMETO1-tampa-based-crime-story-to-hit-big-screen/news-breaking/
Mazur's undercover work helped to expose corruption and money laundering schemes by the world's 7th largest privately held bank, BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International). The bank helped Mazur, posing as a mob-connected money launderer, Bob Musella, launder tens of millions of dollars for the Medellin cartel.
"My passion is this issue and in my view, I'm kind of a vehicle through which the story can be honestly told because I saw it firsthand," said Mazur
The investigation climaxed with the arrest of smugglers and bankers at a staged wedding in Tampa in the late 1980s. The final arrest count was nearly 100 drug traffickers, money launderers, top bank executives and the demise of BCCI.
Brad Furman, director of "The Lincoln Lawyer" which starred Matthew McConaughey has taken this project under his wing and will expose one of the most thrilling behind-the-scenes stories into the Medellin Cartel to date. Mazur is an Executive Director for the movie that portrays his life.
Mazur and Furman expect production of the film to start in 2013.
