Thursday, August 24, 2017


A former Panamanian president will learn at the end of August whether he will be sent from Miami to his homeland to face charges that he illegally orchestrated a spying mission against his rivals while using a government-funded surveillance system.

Magistrate Judge Edwin Torres set the Aug. 31 deadline for his decision on the fate of 65-year-old Ricardo Martinelli after a final hearing Wednesday on Panama’s extradition request.
