Temas:

Panamanian prosecutors requested their Brazilian counterparts Tuesday to be more precise in the judicial assistance request they sent to Panama related to the Lava Jato corruption investigation.

The Panamanian delegation, composed of Deputy Minister David Diaz, Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Ruth Morcillo and International Affairs Prosecutor Digna Atencio, met in Brasilia with Isalino Giacomet, coordinator international cooperation of the Ministry of Justice, and Lava Jato Prosecutor Deltan Dallagnol.

According to a statement by the Panama Public Ministry, Diaz said that Brazil officials apologized for information about the case that had appeared in the media, and said the information was not provided by prosecutors.

In the afternoon, the Panamanian officials met with Regional Prosecutor Vladimir Aras, whom they told to be more precise in the application for assistance. 

Diaz explained that such requests have to comply with Panamanian law.

According to Diaz, the Brazilian authorities acknowledged that Panama is a cooperative country that has shown its willingness to assist with investigations.

The decision to make the trip to Brazil was made after a number of articles appeared in La Prensa that stated that the officials were not cooperating with the request for judicial assistance. Brazilian prosecutors are seeking information about a bank account in Panama that was allegedly used to pay bribes to government officials in exchange for state contracts by the construction company Odebrecht.

Brazilian prosecutors submitted the request 18 months ago.
