Monday, June 8, 2015

Panama’s banking regulator ordered the suspension of the operations of Banco Universal, owned by the family of Felipe "Pipo" Virzi who is currently under investigation for offences against public administration and money laundering.

An inspection of the bank found "a high degree of weakness," which prompted the decision.
