IN CUSTODY, MARTINELLI SEEKS A SPEEDY RESOLUTION OF HIS BOND REQUEST



Although he appears to be in no hurry to have the appeal of the Court's denial of his Habeus Corpus petition resolved, the fugitive ex-president of Panama, Ricardo Martinelli certainly wants to accelerate the time-line on his pending petition to be released on bond. The court file may be essentially sealed, but the docket sheet shows that Martinelli's attorneys filed a motion to expedite the Briefing Schedule on the bond request.

We wonder: why can't the fugitive be as diligent in moving his appeal forward, by filing a Notice of Appeal early on, rather than wait until the entire 14-day period granted by the Court, has elapsed .
