Panamanian Nidal Waked will soon be getting his day in a US court  to face charges  of fraud and money laundering after Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos authorized his extradition.

A Florida prosecutor is reported to be calling for a 50-year sentence in a case that has devastated  the Waked family owned business empire that once included Soho Mall, Felix B Maduro and the La Riviera chain of stores, a prominent fixture in  Latin American airports.
