Shops closed in Panama mall amid scandal

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

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.
