Temas:

A report by the comptroller has implicated five former ministers in irregularities connected to the rental of helicopters during the administration of Ricardo Martinelli.

The report also implicates four rental companies. The ministers were not named.

The estimated economic damage to the state is $10 million. That estimate is based on a forensic audit carried out by the comptroller and covers a time frame from 2009 to 2014.

According to the document, the rentals were paid for by the National Assistance Program (PAN). It states that the government paid an average of $3,000 per hour when the market rate was $1,800.

Also, records with the Civil Aviation Authority cast doubt into whether some of the flights actually took place.

The report has been sent to the Court of Auditors for further investigation.
