JUDICIAL AFFAIRS

Wiretapping case still stalled

Victims want the matter to move forward.

Spanish version

Temas:

It has been almost three months since the last official announcement from the office of Judge Jerome Mejía about the criminal case against former President Ricardo Martinelli for allegedly ordering illegal wiretaps..

On Jan. 25, Mejia told victims and complainants in the process that he had initiated the translation of about 2,000 pages in the case file to formally submit the request for the capture of Martinelli to authorities in the United States. That arrest was ordered by the Supreme Court Dec. 23.

That was the last public statement by the judge on the case.

Unofficially, the judge apparently requested that Martinelli be detained for purposes of extradition.

However, since that date, the judge has been silent and has not confirmed if it is true or not. At the same time, the Foreign Ministry says that it has not received any request from the court.

On March 14, Police Director Omar Pinzón confirmed that Mejia sent him a note which asked for the arrest of Martinelli in Panama.

The next day, Pinzón responded to the judge and said the former president was not in Panama.

Mejía has declined to comment on the matter.
