The Office of the Attorney General and National Police carried out a joint operation in six Departments of the country impacting illegal finances of the criminal structure led by Marcos de Jesús Figueroa García, alias Marquitos Figueroa, which was also integrated by José ‘Ñeñe’ Hernández and Armando Gnecco known as ‘Mandarino’.
