It is a pity that Panama has not explored the possibility of becoming an accuser in the money laundering case against the children of former President Ricardo Martinelli, in New York. Although the funds passed through the US banking system, the truth is that it is money that belongs to the Panamanian people, so, at least, the Government should have been interested, but not even for that it has served. We lost the opportunity in Italy, with the Finmeccanica case, and now in the United States, with the Odebrecht case. The Government has also not reacted to the fact that the US lawyers who represent the interests of Panama in various matters and arbitrations are the same ones who defend this confessed criminal of conspiracy to launder bribes, to the detriment of the State. The government should fire them since you cannot be at the service of the State while simultaneously helping those who rob you. But these "subtleties" are imperceptible to our rulers because deep down they are not very different from these bandits. At the end of his sentence, the confessed will be deported to Panama and we will see him and his family saying that he is a politically persecuted person. And nothing will happen to him in the country of the happy ending for criminals.
