  He was the go-to expert on money laundering. Now he’s been charged with laundering money. Bruce Bagley, a professor at the University of Miami, received roughly $3 million in dirty money from Venezuela and kept a cut for himself, according to federal prosecutors.For decades, the 73-year-old University of Miami professor has been the go-to source for journalists looking to understand the shadowy worlds of drug trafficking, organized crime and government graft in Latin America and beyond. But in recent years, authorities say, he became intimately involved with the same corruption that he studied, helping to launder $3 million in dirty money from Venezuela while pocketing about $300,000 for himself.

Gardaí said they are following a definite line of enquiry and the investigation is ongoing.
