The Laundry Man by Kenneth Rijock ( Penguin/Random House UK)

Just when you thought that you were starting to figure out the back story of Ricardo Martinelli's battle against extradition to his native Panama, the game changes. Martinelli reportedly has retained the services of a prominent Dutch attorney, formerly counsel for INTERPOL, and he is said to be working with that crime agency, attempting to remove the Red Notice pending against the former president of Panama.  

Inasmuch as an order of extradition has already been entered in the Martinelli case, cancelling the INTERPOL notice would not be effective to stay, or dismiss the proceedings, as they are based upon an outstanding Panamanian request for extradition, but, should Martinelli win the Habeus Corpus appeal, or leave the USA while out on bond, he would be at risk to be rearrested, if the Red Notice remained in full force and effect.

Does Martinelli have one more trick up his sleeve ?
