Monday, August 28, 2017

Corruption watchers from around the world, spearheaded by Transparency International will  be awaiting this Thursday’s decision of the South Florida judge handling Panama’s  request for the extradition of ex-president  Ricardo Martinelli to face a  wiretapping and embezzlement trial which if found guilty could see him behind bars for decades, with multiple other corruption charges waiting in the wings.

If the judge decides to hand him over, the bureaucratic formalities could take months but Martinelli would remain in detention.
