There’s trouble brewing at the Trump International Hotel in Panama and it’s starting to boil over. Violence broke out in the hallways at the hotel prompting the government to dispatch police in riot gear to handle in the situation.
This is the result of an ongoing dispute between the President’s namesake company and the building’s majority owner for control of the property. Since the weekend, the hotel’s staff have been trying to physically evict executives representing the President’s company from the property.
Orestes Fintiklis, the majority owner, previously filed a legal complaint last week to try to removed the Trump Organization. Witnesses allege they heard Trump people using a shredder and that they improperly destroyed documents.
