The Foreign Ministry confirmed that it received yesterday documentation for the request for the extradition of former President Ricardo Martinelli from the Supreme Court.

The order relates to illegal wiretaps ordered during his administration on his political opponents, union leaders, journalists, business owners and others.

"The ministry's legal consultants will now proceed with the review of the documents to ensure that they comply with the requirements. As soon as they confirm that they are in order, the Foreign Ministry will announce the next steps in accordance with the procedure," said the Foreign Ministry in a statement.

The court admitted the complaint against Martinelli in June 2015, assigning Harry Díaz as prosecutor and Jerome Mejia as judge.

On December 21, 2015, the plenum of the court ordered the arrest of the former president since he did not appear at a hearing.

Martinelli, who fled Panama in January 2015, said via Twitter that the action against him is politically-motivated.
