Panama City opts for Odebrecht sidewalks

Friday, April 15, 2016

Panama’s municipality followed in the footsteps of successive governments and  awarded the near $100 million contract for installing sidewalks leading to Plaza Cinco de Mayo  in Panama City to  scandal ridden Norberto Odebrecht SA., already the recipient of over $2 billion of awards, some of them clouded with corruption allegations.

Odebrecht’s former president is serving a near 20 year jail term in Brazil after heading a company alleged to have paid off governments around the world to obtain contracts.
