A lawyer acting for a client suing Daniel Kinahan has said his client should get a $6million payout after the mob boss was sanctioned by the US Government.

Eric Montalvo says he believes his client has significantly bolstered his case against Kinahan thanks to submissions he made on his behalf to a court which brand the gangster a “narco-terrorist”.

The American lawyer represents boxing manager Moses Heredia, who was suing Kinahan and promoters MTK Global for $2million over the alleged poaching of boxer JoJo Diaz.

Mr Montalvo is also pursuing RICO (the US Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisations Act) charges against Kinahan by alleging his money derived from organised crime activity.

In a newly-amended complaint to the US District Court in the Central District of California, he submitted 211 grounds for taking the case against Kinahan and MTK Global.

Among them he claimed Kinahan “is deeply connected to professional boxing and also an international narco-terrorist”.

The new complaint calls for a jury trial against Kinahan and MTK Global – which shut its doors this month.

In the written submissions Mr Montalvo stated his case against the mobster “at its core arises from an effort undertaken by Mr Kinahan to present himself and his associates as legitimate business persons through the establishment of legitimate businesses”.

He goes on to claim these businesses then “steal fighters” from duly licensed promoters and managers.

Mr Heredia has alleged MTK effectively broke his contract with Diaz by throwing money at the boxer and “stealing” him.

As a result he was seeking damages of $2million but this has now potentially risen to $6million.

Mr Montalvo is also pursuing RICO charges against Kinahan which he believes have been strengthened significantly by the US sanctions.

He therefore submits to the court this entitles his client Mr Heredia to “treble damages”.

The complaint cites how “on April 11 the US Treasury Department’s Office of ForeignAssets Control designated the Kinahan Organized Crime Group (KOGC),as a ‘Transnational Criminal Organization’ and designated Mr Kinahan, along with several other KOCG members, as Specially Designated Nationals”.

The US Government officially accused the Kinahan mob of “smuggling deadly narcotics, including cocaine, to Europe, and declared it “a threat to the entire licit economy through its role in international money laundering.”

It also said that Daniel Kinahan himself “runs the day-to-day operations’, claiming that as the cartel boss has now been named by the US Government as operating a “Transnational Criminal Organization” he is violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

He has therefore submitted to the court that this entitles his client Mr Heredia to “treble damages”.
