The White House said it would close loopholes that allow foreigners to open anonymous US-incorporated companies, and advance legislation requiring banks, brokers and other financial institutions to know and keep records on who actually owns accounts.

The U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said the operation, led by Nidal Waked Hatum and Abdul Waked Fares, used 68 companies including Grupo Wisa - a holding company that includes real estate, construction, retail and media businesses. Panama's banking regulator said it was taking control of Balboa Bank & Trust due to its alleged links to the money laundering scheme.
