Credit cards transactions blocked to La Riviera stores in Colombia

Temas:

The credit card points of sale in La Riviera stores in Colombia have been cancelled.

The information was confirmed by the newspaper El Tiempo of Bogotá. The stores are owned by Abdul Waked, who is one of the people who have been placed on a sanctions list by the United States for his connection to drug traffickers.

"The payment systems, through which it processes credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard, have blocked transactions from those stores," the newspaper said.

La Riviera has some $138 million in sales in Colombia.

A similar measure was taken in Panama last week against the stores.

La Riviera and 67 other companies connected to Waked and his relatives have been placed on the Clinton list by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Nidal Waked was arrested in Colombia May 4.

Last week, U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley defended the decision, saying that "for years, Nidal Waked, Abdul Waked, and their accomplices abused the financial systems of the United States and Panama."
