New challenge faces ex-president of Panama

Friday, June 16, 2017


Ricardo Martinell, the former president of Panama, is currently confined to an 11 ft by 6 ft cell in a Miami detention center  awaiting an extradition hearing on June 20, as his lawyers gather to plot ways to continue their two-year long efforts to keep him from facing justice in Panama. Martinelli has no television, or access  to computers or phone, including Twitter.

There is a possibility that the United States justice system could include other cases in the hearing, reports La Prensa.
