MARTINELLI REQUESTS A STAY OF SURRENDER WHILE HIS HABEUS PETITION IS PENDING



Counsel for the former President of Panama, Ricardo Martinelli Berrocal, have filed what is captioned Motion to Stay of Surrender pending Appeal, in the Habeus Corpus case filed on September 28, after a US Magistrate Judge ordered Martinelli's extradition, to face criminal charges in Panama.

Unfortunatelty, we are unable to review the details of that motion, because the Court has restricted public access to it, for some unknown reason. We will not have long to wait though, as the response of the US Government defendants, the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, and the Acting Warden of FDC Miami, is due shortly, and Habeus proceedings call for an expedited ruling; Stay tuned.
