Panama media group fights for survival

Wednesday, December 14, 2016


Eduardo Quirós, president of Grupo Editorial El Siglo y La Estrella, with barely three weeks left in the media group’s temporary operating license  is making a last gasp attempt to save Panama’s oldest newspaper and the jobs of the remaining 250 staff.

The group was placed on a sanctions list in May due to the alleged connections between its owner, Abdul Waked, and money laundering.
