Lithuania Receives No Reply From Panama About Antonov’s Assets

Lithuanian prosecutors haven’t gotten a reply from Panamanian authorities to their requests to freeze domestic assets owned by Vladimir Antonov, a former Bankas Snoras AB (SRS1L) shareholder.

The request for legal assistance was sent on Dec. 13 through Interpol, Ruta Dirsiene, a spokeswoman for the Prosecutor General’s office in Vilnius, Lithuania’s capital, said today in an e-mailed reply to questions.

The Panamanian banking regulator, the Superintendency, authorized the sale of Antonov’s 85.2 percent stake in Banco Trasatlantico SA to minority shareholders, all Panamanian, on Dec. 14, the regulator said in an e-mailed reply to Bloomberg questions. Banco Trasatlantico “continues to carry out its operations in a regular and usual manner,” it said.
