#Panama – The Second Criminal Court of La Chorrera sentenced the former Prosecutor of the Second Circuit of La Chorrera, Archimedes Sáez, to three years in prison for the crime of extortion. Saez was accused of taking 600.00 U.S. dollars to ease the conditions of detention of a woman who was being held in the jail at the former Judicial Technical Police (PTJ) in 2005. The hearing in this case was held on Friday October 14 in the Second Criminal Court of La Chorrera. After hearing the news, Sáez lawyers announced they would appeal the decision. (TVN)
Editor’s Comment: This is the guy who extorted money out of the family members of a woman who was being held in a jail cell in La Chorrera. The Attorney General at the time, Ana Matilde Gomez, ordered wiretaps to investigate the allegations, which turned out to be true. No matter, the Supreme Court decided that the wiretaps were illegal, and they used that decision to get her out of office (Martinelli wanted her gone.) So now, the corrupt prosecutor who asked for the bribes, Archimedes Sáez, has been convicted to three years in prison. The Panamanian legal code for these kinds of crimes does not allow for the sentence to be commuted to a fine – so it’s hard time behind bars. His lawyers will appeal the decision. Anyway, score one in the anti-corruption bracket, even if it was a politicized case that cost the Attorney General her job. Hey, if it wasn’t this one, they would have used something else to get her out of the way.
