Immunity for Vallarino needs to be waived

Eduardo Peñaloza, fiscal electoral

The Electoral Office is waiting for a request from the Tribunal Electoral to waive the immunity of former Minister of Economy and Finance Alberto Vallarino so a complaint about the alleged use of state resources to bribe legislators, mayors and councillors can be investigated.

24/10/2011 - Prosecutor Eduardo Peñaloza said that unless immunity for the minister is waived, the complaint can't be investigated.

 

Peñaloza indicated that Vallarino enjoys electoral immunity because he participated in the primaries of the Panameñista party. The prosecutor noted that, generally speaking, the Tribunal acts quite quickly on these requests.

The complaint was filed by Pedro Miguel Gonzalez, first secretary of the  Partido Revolucionario Democrático. It states that funds from the a social development program were distributed to representatives and mayors this year for switching parties. The fund falls under the portfolio of the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

Program Administrator Giacomo Tamburelli today urged officials to expedite the investigation, as he said no evidence of wrongdoing will be uncovered.

Ahora el culpable de comprar diputados para el CD, incluyendo diputados panameñistas, es un panameñista. Lo cierto es que al menos en el caso de los bribones del CD, lo que se hereda no se hurta.
