Shops closed in Panama mall amid scandal
Some 15 shops have closed since May 5 in Panama’s high end Soho Mall, following US action against its owners, the Waked family.
The US Treasury put Soho Mall’s owner on the Clinton List, and members of the Waked family are accused of laundering drug money.
Meanwhile Panama’s Chamber of Commerce is calling on US authorities to grant operating licenses to the stores.
