The case involves questionable payments connected to the company.

Spanish version

Temas:

Lawyers for the company Pele System, Inc. have sought to dismiss a case filed against it for questionable payments linked to it as part of the contract it received during the last government from the Panama Maritime Authority.

The claims was filed by attorney Miguel Batista, who said the claim brought by current authority Administrator Jorge Barakat is not valid since the original contract was properly awarded.

The claim was filed before Judge Luis Ramón Fábrega, who may not be eligible to hear the case because he was part of the Board of Directors of the authority when the contract was awarded.

Between 2010 and 2014, Pele System received more than $31 million in contracts from the government. Most of that amount, $25 million, was from the Maritime Authority.

One of these contracts, to provide cellular and high speed internet service, was suspended due to irregularities.

Since then, investigators have discovered questionable financial transactions made between the firm and foreign shell companies connected to Panama officials.

Prosecutors have ordered an audit of the company's finances as part of the investigation.
