Panama's Stanford Stock Brokerage Taken Over

The seizure was conducted as a result of the take-over of its related bank, Stanford Bank Panama.

Friday, February 20, 2009

In a press release, the National Commission of Securities of Panama indicated that it decided to take intervention action against Stanford Casa de Valores S.A. because of the existing legal actions in the United States against Robert Allen Stanford and the businesses related to him, and the administrative and operating take-over of Stanford Bank Panama, Inc. that occurred 3 days ago.

These facts “...have negative effects on the reputation and financial solvency of Stanford Casa de Valores S.A."
