(Media-Newswire.com) - Former deep undercover agent for the DEA, Robert Mazur, will be the key note speaker at the Harvard Law & International Development Symposium on Friday, November 9, 2012.
Robert Mazur played the principal role in what FBI Director Robert Mueller III acclaims was "One of the largest money-laundering prosecutions in U.S. history." Mazur's undercover work led to the prosecution of Colombian drug kingpins, former Panamanian General Manuel Noriega, and senior management of what was the 7th largest privately held bank in the world, The Bank of Credit & Commerce International ( BCCI ). His five years embedded within the underworld led to the forfeiture of hundreds of millions, the seizure of tons of cocaine, as well as the imprisonment of senior drug cartel leaders and dirty bankers. He recently authored The Infiltrator, a memoir that details his underworld life as a mob connected money launderer.
Mazur's keynote speech at Harvard Law will focus on the methods of corruption he witnessed during the time he assumed the role of a conduit for the Medellin Cartel to a number of dirty international banks and businesses. Afterward, he will participate in a panel discussion with other experts that will address the degree to which drug cartels currently pose a corrupting influence on democracies around the globe, as well as strategies that should be pursued to address this threat.
The Harvard Law & International Development Symposium will start at noon at the Harvard Law School, 1563 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02138.
Robert Mazur is available for interviews. For more information about The Infiltrator visit www.The-Infiltrator.com. He is represented by Eclectic Media Productions National PR Firm.
