Panama ’s former Minister of Public Works  Federico José Pepe Suárez, accused of embezzlement in the Casco Viejo preservation project carried out by Odebrecht in the last government, has been granted bail of $1.5 million.

The former minister is provisionally detained in this case and for the investigation for alleged money laundering through the company Blue Apple.

Suarez is also charged in other cases, in which he has already been granted release bonds, for example, the alleged cost overruns in the widening project of the  Domingo Díaz road and the alleged irregularities in the extension of the Arraiján-La Chorrera highway. In both cases, he got bail of half a million dollars.
