"[J]ust days after the Bank Muscat Unlimited Operation, defendant Franjul and co-conspirators packed approximately $800,000 in cash into luggage destined for the late Lajud-Peña, who was then in Miami," a court document reads. "Franjul's co-conspirators took the cash-filled luggage on a bus to Florida, where they gave some or all of the cash to Lajud-Peña, who later fled to the Dominican Republic."
