Apparently, the Central American Parliament is not a refuge for scoundrels after all. A spokesman has gone on record, declaring that former Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli was not the recipient of the legal privilege of immunity, when he was abruptly sworn in as a Deputy, immediately after leaving office in Panama.
In order for a Deputy to hold immunity, one must serve in office, with the Central American Parliament, for a minimum of six (6) months. After hearing this statement, Martinelli, who is facing multiple criminal corruption charges in Panama, had some very vile things to say about the international body.
Martinelli's current whereabouts are a total mystery; he sent his private jet to Europe, without any passengers, in an obvious attempt to deceive those ion Panamanian law enforcement who were tracking his movements. Some sources believe that he has arrived in Paraguay, where he reportedly has purchased a large estate, and which has no extradition treaty with Panama. Other resources assert that he is living in Brazil. Where in the world is Ricardo Martinelli ?
