The General Directorate of Revenue (DGI) has ordered the seizure of accounts and assets of companies linked to the company Showpro and its director, Alfredo "Popa" Arias, for alleged tax evasion.

The order included the seizure of property and bank accounts of Ashe Entertainment Group and World Wide Promotions Group, as well as the personal accounts of Arias. The amount seized is estimated at $10.2 million.

The investigation is focused on the relationship between Ashe Entertainment Group and another company, A Entertainment Solutions Corp., which took over the other company. This transaction was suspicious because, according to tax filings, Ashe Entertainment Group did not report any profits for several years. The legal representative of A Entertainment Solutions Corp. is Katia Fábrega, who has worked in the Presidency of the Republic since January 2015. Fábrega also worked for the government of former President Ricardo Martinelli.

The DGI said that the transaction appears to have been a deliberate attempt to avoid the payment of taxes.

Currently Showpro has its administrative offices on the premises of NexTv, which is owned by Martinelli. It was also hired by the government to put up holiday decorations in areas of Panama City.

The allegations is that Showpro manipulated contracts to hide revenue. The amount of the tax evasion has been estimated at $1.7 million.

Showpro, which is owned by Ashe Entertainment, did not report any profits in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
