Judge stymies “complex”corruption probes

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

A criminal court judge in Panamá after admitting “serious crimes have been committed”  rejected requests from prosecutors to have cases involving high profile figures from the Martinelli era declared “complex” which would give prosecutors time to wrap up their investigations.

Eighteenth criminal judge Baloisa Marquínez rejected two requests from public prosecutors in the “New Business”  case and the process of capital in the loan granted by the Caja de Ahorros for the convention center in Amador.
