Monday, July 31, 2017

Growing  frustration over perceived lack of action in the investigation of the Odebrecht bribery scandal in Panama, while elsewhere in Latin America corrupted politicians are behind bars has sparked a series of protests in Panama.

Concerns have been exacerbated  by allegations  from a former Odebrecht  financial officer, originally published in Spain linking President  Juan Carlos Varela to the scandal. Business groups like the Chamber of Commerce and civil organizations have voiced their concerns over the latest revelations.
