In the complaint to which La Estrella de Panamá had access , and which has been admitted by the Public Ministry, the events that affected Lasso are narrated.

Lasso adds that this assertion was based on speculation without any evidence, a situation that can be clearly misrepresented, since there is no final conviction against him.
