The third anti-corruption prosecutor has requested former Minister of Public Security Jose Raul Mulino and former National Security Council General Secretary Alejandro Garuz to be called to trial for alleged irregularities in the purchase of 19 radars from Selex, a subsidiary of the Italian company Finmeccanica.

The request was forwarded today to the Fifth Criminal Court, which is responsible for setting a date for the preliminary hearing.

Mulino is preventively detained at the headquarters of the national police headquarters in Ancón, while Garuz is being held under protection custody in a hospital.

Both are charged with embezzlement to the detriment of the Ministry of Public Security.

Panama purchased 19 radars from Selex for $125 million to allegedly combat drug trafficking. But they have failed to operate as promised. There are also allegations that there were kickbacks paid to government officials that were part of the larger contract with Finmeccanica that was worth $250 million.
