Panama’s Waked launches $165 million lawsuit

Friday, July 14, 2017

Abdul Waked, accused by US Treasury authorities of  heading  a criminal group linked to Colombian and Mexican drug cartels, is launching a court case claiming $165 million for the loss of the Felix B Maduro retail store chain.

He lost it after his  group of companies were placed on the Clinton list of suspects of money-laundering and organized crime. The list prohibits US citizens or companies from doing business with those on the list.
