Minatura update: Now big news in Colombia

We broke the story here on IKN a few days ago that Claudia Herrera of Minatura International and Cordoba Minerals (CDB.v) had been arrested along with five other people by Colombian police, who were working in conjunction with Interpol on a big money laundering ring. 

The news broke in Colombia last week too, with this report from Colombia news channel CM& on the six arrests and the years' long investigation into the money laundering ring that was using Minatura to funnel illicit cash into mining projects in the Antioquia region of Colombia. Police say they are now on an international search for the head of the group, who wasn't formally named but ID'd as  a North American with the initials "JR". That sounds like Minatura's COO, John Rae, to me.
