Panama announces 5 day bank holiday

More “Bail-ins” on the way around the world. Your deposits are not safe.

Follow The Money


This morning the National Bank of Panama announced that it was suspending all services until Tuesday the 1st of October. The National Bank of Panama claims that the reason for the 5 day bank holiday is to upgrade systems.
The Clave (Debit Card) system has been taken offline. No wire transfers between banks and internationally until the 1st of October.

This system wide shutdown has country wide implications. The National Bank of Panama did not warn the people before making the announcement and shutting down the banks. The people do not have access to ATM’s either. We received word of this from family members first. This weekend is payday for people across Panama.

Is the next Cyprus-style bankster bail-in about to be implemented in Panama?


did you see this on your mainstream news tonight? i bet you didnt..
