CONTROVERSY

The oral trial of former President Ricardo Martinelli resumed on the morning of this Monday, May 20, to continue cross-examining the expert Luis Enrique Rivera Calle.

This Friday, May 17, the oral trial concluded in the middle of the request for equality of conditions when questioning the experts and witnesses, requested by the Prosecutor against Organized Crime, Aurelio Vásquez, Judge Roberto Tejeira, president of the Court of Judgment in the case of punctures.

Vásquez specifically criticized Tejeira’s criteria for admitting Rivera Calle as a witness, since he was cited as an expert since the beginning of the trial.

In addition, Rivera Calle has given statements in computer science and the interrogations of the prosecution have been limited to that perspective.

For his part, Alfredo Vallarino, of Martinelli’s team of lawyers, reiterated that Rivera Calle’s statements reveal that there was clear manipulation of the evidence against his client.

According to Vallarino, the presence of the head of the National Security Council, Rolando López, was demonstrated in multiple proceedings of the Public Ministry related to this case.
