When the followers of Martinelli found out that the exmandatario arrived at the Tocumen airport, they gathered in the fence located in the area of the old facilities of the air terminal.
The group carried flags of the Cambio Democrático party and shouted that “the madman has arrived”.
Meanwhile, outside the Supreme Court of Justice, supporters also carried flags and shouted slogans such as “Ring, ring, answer that Martinelli has arrived!”.
The United States extradited Martinelli, at the request of the Court, which prosecutes him for the unauthorized interception of communications from the National Security Council in the last two years of his term.
