The former Colombia football international Mauricio Serna also was charged on Tuesday. A report in The Guardian says Victoria Henao, Juan Pablo Escobar Henao and Serna are accused of being intermediaries in Argentina for the Colombian drug dealer José Piedrahita to launder money through real estate and a cafe known for its tango performances. Local judge Nestor Barral also ordered the seizing of some of their assets for about $1m each.
