OPINION: Supreme Court tragicomedy

Playing the health card

With the two new appeals filed by Ricardo Martinelli's defense, it seems like a repetition of a tragicomedy, in which the theater is the Supreme Court of Justice, and the actors interpret the same script. The wiretapping case continues to be dilated by medical excuses and demands of protections of guarantees that pursue the same purpose: to delay the trial of a scandal that the country needs to know the truth about.  It is time for the plenary of the Supreme Court of Justice to act with determination against the abuse of the right of defense, which abounds in cases such as the wiretapping.. The essence of the accusatory criminal system is fast and transparent justice. There was never an expectation that public opinion would be a witness, to more of the same, that occurs in ordinary justice, repeating itself in our top court. Justice implies respect for the guarantees of the accused, but not the mockery of the canons of the reason and the spirit of the law … LA PRENSAJul.26.

PANAMA | MARTINELLI LAWYERS, DELAYS FOR BENEFITS. Martinelli lawyers delays, justice and sentencing. Martinelli benefits from company and chances for a technical exit. Martinelli thrives on public appearances and experts for his plans. Martinelli money and as former Panama president will always call the shots. Martinelli supports the expensive cost of his lawyers and currency in Panama. Martinelli puts a tax burden on Panama tax payers and the Supreme Court. Martinelli will always throw a monkey wrench with the court and sleep well. Martinelli money, lawyers and constitutional right (knowledge) is power, a precedent. Martinelli loves to talk and handles money well with expert defense. Martinelli knows he can complicate things one way or another. Martinelli news is Martinelli fame. Martinelli shows off books of knowledge and argues with Honorable judge. Men with money are men who play the system to the end. Give me a maid for two hours, and I will show you who is master! Give me someone who will clean the toilet and mop my floor. Give me visitations and furnishing for my guests.
