PANAMA'S SUPREME COURT JUDGES DELAY THE MARCH OF JUSTICE AGAINST RICARDO MARTINELLI




Pending cases against Martinelli
Only three of the twelve active cases filed against Panama's ex-president, Ricardo Martinelli, are actually moving forward. The others remain in legal limbo, thanks to the corrupt members of the Supreme Court of Justice, who are displaying little interest in bringing Martinelli to justice, and the people of Panama are angry about this "business as usual" attitude at the Court.

There is a reason for this sorry situation. Some of the judges are suspects in the Financial Pacific insider trading scandal, including Chief Judge José Ayú Prado, and Hérnan De Leon. Others have dark pasts, where they took bribes and fixed cases. Still others are Martinelli allies. Frankly, the entire Supreme Court of Justice should be removed from the bench, and replaced with attorneys who are known to be honest, follow the rule of law, and trusted by the people of Panama. Let's see if the new reform government is up to the task.
