Panama gets helicopter hush money

Monday, December 12, 2016


A $10 million helicopter ambulance that  was part of a deal to help dampen  concerns over a Ricardo  Martinelli era purchase involving allegations of a $25 million kickback to those in power, has arrived in Panama.

The Italian contractor Finmeccanica agreed to provide the helicopter for free to settle issues with a $250 million defense contract dating from the Martinelli  administration.
