Temas:

The Supreme Court has unanimously declared the arrest order for former President Ricardo Martinelli that was issued on Dec. 21 to be legal.

During a meeting of the plenary of the court held yesterday, the judges rejected arguments submitted by lawyers Rogelio Cruz and Edgar Alejandro Sánchez, who both represent Martinelli. They had presented habeas corpus writs on behalf of the former president to prevent his arrest on charges related to illegal surveillance conducted during his administration.

The writs were combined and submitted to Judge Efrén Tello, the substitute for Luis Ramón Fábrega, who presented them to the plenary with his recommendation.

The decision clears the way for Judge Jerome Mejía to order the arrest of Martinelli, who is thought to be in the United States. Mejia is in the process of having the documents in the case translated into English, which is required for him to be arrested in the US.

These documents include transcripts of hearings in the case and evidence compiled by Prosecutor Harry Díaz.
