TWO PANAMANIAN LAW FIRMS CHARGE JUDGES WHO DISMISSED MONEY LAUNDERING CASES AGAINST 12 FRIENDS OF MARTINELLI



Lawyers from two law firms have brought criminal charges against two sitting Panamanian judges who dismissed all the money laundering charges against a dozen individuals who were close associates of the former (fugitive) president of Panama, Ricardo Martinelli. The lawyer allege judicial misconduct.

The courts dismissed the pending money laundering charges, after former judge Alejandro Moncada Luna led guilty to reduced charges, instead of money laundering and corruption, which he was guilty of. Without  a basis to preserve the money laundering charges against the individuals who paid the bribes, the Court dismissed them, and now, private attorneys are charging those judges with a crime.
