It is noteworthy that in 1990 the Luxembourg-based BCCI admitted in federal court in Florida, had bleached Colombian drug money, which ended with the arrest of seven executives, including Amjad Awan, who confessed to be Noriega's bank advisor.
Awan was responsible for the BCCI in Panama and in 1988 he reported to be Noriega's personal banker, who he said had a secret checking account with at least $ 25 million. (Panama America)
