(Reuters) - A Miami man described as "a financier for fraudsters" has been charged with playing a central role in a money-laundering operation that funneled millions in proceeds from a U.S. healthcare fraud scheme into Cuban banks.
Oscar Sanchez, a Cuban-born U.S. citizen, was arrested by the FBI last week and appeared at a detention hearing in federal court in Miami on Monday.
MIAMI — Just on day after alleging
that a South Florida man ran a "vast cash-to-Cuba operation," federal
prosecutors said they have no proof that the Castro regime is behind a multi-million-dollar Medicare money-laundering scam.
