The 28  member countries of that make up the  European Union (EU) have rejected the 'black' list drawn up by the European Commission that included Panama on the grounds that its financial system ran a "high risk" of money laundering.  

On Thursday, March 7   a joint statement said:"The Council can not support the current proposal, which was not established with a transparent and solid process that actively encourages the affected countries to take decisive measures while respecting the right to be heard."

The decision, taken unanimously on Wednesday at the diplomatic level requires the community executive to present a new proposal.  

The Brussels institutions regretted the rejection claiming it has been gestated "without any debate at a political level".  

In the Commission’s opinion, the list was configured after a "deep analysis" based on a "solid" methodology and with the "highest level" of transparency.  

The Commission's spokesperson, Margaritis Schinas, said that Europe "will continue working" to fight against money laundering.

This plot also mentions Badger Title Company, belonging to a lawyer partner of Rómulo Roux, now presidential candidate of CD. Through this company alleged bribes of Odebrecht would have received for $500 billion, part of which was allegedly used to pay credit cards from Roux. As part of this process, the anti-corruption special prosecutor asked the Electoral Tribunal elevate Roux electoral criminal immunity to investigate it, but this request was rejected by the judges.

The prosecutor is requesting to lift his protection status under his candidacy but the judge for this jurisdiction will not allow it. The Badger Title account for Romolux partner lawyer had $500 thousand and part of this was used to payoff Romolux credit card.

Let me pose the question again... Who do you think Romulo Roux will be loyal to? Think...he owes someone a favor!: Credit card - ($100's thousands) The complicit judge with Romulo Roux protection status in the face of evidence continues with the political corrupt campaign. Romulo Roux is the president of Cambio Democratico party founded by former Panama president Ricardo Martinelli, Martinelli is now in El Renecer prison. Romulo Roux will do what it takes to pay back the favor and it is usually a high investment return. Romulo Roux is high risk for...money laundering included in the financial system.
