Prosecutor Ricardo González revealed on Friday, October 15, that he will present a new witness to the interceptions of communications in the trial of former President Ricardo Martinelli.

González did not identify the new witness, but it emerged that it is the PRD leader and former presidential candidate Balbina Herrera, who is also one of the plaintiffs reports La Prensa.

The oral trial was resumed after it was suspended at noon on Wednesday, October 13 due to health problems of Judge Jennifer Saavedra, who is one of the three that make up the Oral Trial Court.

The three judges agreed to the request of the defense o suspend the trial until Monday at 9:00 am

The group of defenders said that due to the cross-examination of the PRD leader Mitchell Doens, the trial would be suspended and the afternoon session will not take place this Friday, October 15.

They also based their request on the fact that a new witness would appear in the case.
