Six months after it should have referred an Order of Extradition for former president Ricardo Martinelli, to the Foreign Ministry, Panama's Supreme Court of Justice continues to sit on the matter. The Court, most of whose justices were appointed by Martinelli, and against whom evidence continues to pile up for taking money to fix cases before it, remains in power, and Panama allows it.
Until the corrupt members of the Supreme Court of Justice are dismissed, and arrested, there will not be any true reform in the Republic of Panama. Martinelli, who has a dozen cases pending against him, is laughing out loud from Miami. The so-called reform plan of President Varela has failed.
