Odebrecht bribery inaction sparks protests in Panama
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.
