More S&L houses shut doors

Savings and loan funds Drukos and AGW have closed their doors, keeping clients from billions of crowns in deposits. Although executives at the funds say clients will be paid, the anti-fraud police are investigating the firms. The two funds follow the closure of BMG and Horizont savings and loan funds earlier this year.
