CNBC Business Nation – The Tri-Border
This CNBC investigation of illegal financial activity and terrorist financing in Latin America was done for their magazine program, Business nation. Shot in Asuncion and Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, Foz da Iguacu and Sao Paulo, Brazil, New York and Washington, DC. This shoot required massive security because of the possibility of street crime and took us on hidden camera shoots of gun stores and stores selling counterfeit goods, inside mosques in the heart of the jungle, out on patrol with Brazilian river police, on raids with Paraguayan Special Forces and inside many unique situations.
Subjects included: investigator Mark McCabe, a former CIA Case Officer, former FBI terrorism-financing Chief Dennis Lormel, Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau and many others.
The on-camera reporter was Trish Regan.
