The Municipal Councilman representing Sabanitas from the Panameñista political party, Marcos “Pepe” Valdés, was arrested yesterday by agents of the Direction of Judicial Investigation (DIJ), in the middle of a surveillance operation over an alleged extortion. Preliminary reports reveal the politician received $10,000 in marked bills in a restaurant in Sabanitas from a businessman, the payment of a bribe so he could be granted a commercial business permit. After the arrest, the municipal representative was taken to the premises of the DIJ on Calle 2 and Avenida Meléndez in the city of Colon. (Panama America)
