Company Cedel International Investment LTD - which was the owner of the Venezuelan banks Canarias, Banpro and Bolivar Banco - operates in the tax jurisdiction of the British Virgin Islands, as revealed by the information of the last worldwide filtration known as the Panama Papers and published by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

The name of Cedel comes from the abbreviations of the last and first name of the Venezuelan banker Eligio Cedeño. The Chavismo arrested him and accused of a scam that led to a legal process that ended with him fleeing to the United States of America in 2009 and, at the same time, gave rise to the already infamous case of Judge María Lourdes Afiuni.
