THE wiretapping trial of ex-president Ricardo Martinelli will resume at 9 am on Friday, March 22, after forensic psychiatrists ruled that his mixed anxiety-depressive disorder would not hinder his ability to follow the proceedings which could lead to a lengthy prison sentence.

The decision of the forensic psychiatrists negated the disability certificate from his private psychiatrist, Frank Guelfi presented by defense lawyers.

However the Court decided to send Martinelli to the Institute of Legal Medicine for a review because the doctor who had issued the document was the subject of multiple questions from plaintiffs whose communications had been accessed under Martinelli’s administration.
