Thursday, June 1, 2017

Panama’s Attorney General Kenia Porcell has tried to light a fire under  the judiciary and banks to enable prosecutors to move forward with  investigations  into 36 suspects in the Odebrecht  bribery scandal.

At a Wednesday press conference she  called on the judiciary to advance the cases involving the construction company.

The future of the investigations depends on the Judicial Branch’s action, which to date involves 36 people: 22 Panamanians, 13 Brazilians and 1 American.
