Editorial Radio Panama. The former Minister of Labor and Labor Development (Mitradel), Alma Cortés, was sentenced to 32 months in prison after the Superior Court of Appeals revoked the acquittal in her favor.
This revocation was also applied to five other citizens, in the case of travel expenses that were used to go to an event at the headquarters of the International Labor Organization (ILO), held in Geneva, Switzerland.
In an interview given to La Estrella de Panamá, Cortés assured that she has not yet been notified.
«We must wait for them to notify us personally and review what is pertinent and appropriate. I still firmly maintain that we have not committed any crime, and we have demonstrated it in this unprecedented political process,” he told the newspaper.
