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 .
