TAIPEI Aug 31 (Reuters) - Taiwan's Mega Financial Holding Co said on Wednesday its chairman, Shiu Kuang-si, has submitted his resignation, the latest development following investigations into the firm after its banking unit violated U.S. anti-money laundering regulations.

The New York branch of Mega Financial's banking unit agreed earlier this month to pay $180 million to New York state's financial regulator for anti-money laundering violations that included lax attention to risk exposure in Panama. (Reporting by J.R. Wu; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
