Panama airport boss admits Odebrecht donations

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

As Panama’s president, Juan Carlos Varela, seeks to distance himself from “donations” from the Odebrecht construction company which since his election has received billions of dollars in government  contracts, the manager of Tocumen International Airport and treasurer of the Panameñista ruling party has admitted soliciting aid.

Carlos Duboy told La Prensa that in 2008, when he served as deputy treasurer of the party, he requested a donation from the scandal-plagued company.
