Panama attorney Ismael Enrique Gerli Champsaur, who is facing criminal charges in Panama City, for forging documents and illegally taking title to his client's real estate, reportedly gave attorney-client privileged communications and documents to representatives of the Spanish Government, to bolster a bogus case against the client, who has been detained for more than two years, as a material witness on a money laundering case that has never been filed.
Gerli's testimony, given in the Canary Islands, has since been discredited, but the client, Vladimir Kokorev, remains in custody, and is presently under house arrest, though no charges have been brought against him, or any other individual, in an obviously political case, which has cast doubt on the Spanish Government's ability to control its prosecutors.
According to reliable Panamanian sources, Gerli bought his law degree from a corrupt university official, and since Panama still has the diploma privilege, which allows law school graduates immediate admission to the bar, without taking an examination, he has legitimate credentials, through he would be lost in a real courtroom. He employs bona fide attorneys to practice law on his behalf.
Gerli's longtime client, Gary James Lundgren, is embroiled in a major dispute with the Trump Organization, over several issues relating to the Trump Ocean Club, over charges Lundgren embezzled millions, while managing the hotel/condominium project. Trump has filed a formal complaint against Lundgren with the International Chamber of Commerce, according to reports from Europe. Lundgren has been barred for life, by FINRA, regarding the sale of securities, or working with any registered securities broker.
