The National Court of Spain admitted on Tuesday Aril 6     an appeal presented by the International  Foundation (Fibgar) in the corruption process of the Spanish construction company Baltazar Garzón  FCC, for works carried out in Panama  for which former president Ricardo Martinelli is under investigation

The Appeals Chamber declared that the criminal case for the alleged commission of the crimes of corruption and money laundering in Spain should be continued and that  Martinelli remains under investigation.

The decision was unanimous, under the presentation of magistrate José Ricardo de Prada Solaesa.

Fibgar requested to be part of the process being carried out in Spain for the alleged payment of bribes from FCC in Panama. For this case, there are 14 people investigated, including Panama

lawyer Mauricio Cort, considered a frontman.

In Panama, FCC faces several legal proceedings related to the alleged payment of bribes to former officials of the Ricardo Martinelli administration for the construction of infrastructure works, including phase II of the Vía Brasil corridor, the improvement of the Vía Cincuentenario and the construction of the city of Health, among others.
