FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL OF PANAMA IMPLICATES PRESIDENT VARELA AND JUSTICE JOSE AYU PRADO

Ex-Fiscal Ana Matilde Gómez
 Ana Matilde Gómez, the former Attorney General of Panama has implicated the country's president, Juan Carlos Varela, accusing him of participating in multiple illegal acts, while acting as Vice President, between 2009 and 2014. The ex-Attorney General also named the president of the Supreme Court of Justice of Panama,  José Ayú Prado,  for corrupt acts he allegedly committed, during the period when he was the lead prosecutor in charge of the organized crime division.

Many Panamanians, and North American expats, have voiced their opinion, that President Varela does not want ex-president Ricardo Martinelli to be extradited to Panama, to face justice in the pending cases against him, because Martinelli will then name many current government officials, including Varela, for their involvement in corruption, and other illegal activity. Ms. Gómez reportedly made these accusations on a local television program, in Panama City.
