The US based Stanford bank was taken under administration by the Bank Superintendent, after its principal shareholder Alan Stanford, was arrested on fraud charges by US authorities. As a result its two branches in Panama were closed, its operations suspended and the deposit holders saw their accounts frozen overnight.
