Martinelli Will Sue Balbina Herrera For Slander

Politics Panama America - Alma Cortés, a lawyer for the political campaign of Ricardo Martinelli, presidential candidate of the "Alliance for Change," announced that next week they will present both civil and criminal complaints against the presidential candidate of the Partido Revolucionario Democratico (PRD), Balbina Herrera, for having falsely accused Martinelli of being a murderer. Cortés said the complaint will be presented after the Carnival celebrations, in response to a paid television political advertisement that has been widely shown since yesterday (Tuesday, 17 February 2009), which raises questions about Martinelli's administration as the Director of the Office of Social Security. The lawyer said they will not request that the advertisement be suspended, because it is a good example of what Balbina Herrera would be capable of if she were elected. Finally, Cortés said she was interested in hearing the opinion of former Panamanian president Ernesto Perez Balladares, because the accusations made by Balbina Herrera against Martinelli also refer to his administration. Jimmy Papadimitriu, the Chief of Martinelli's campaign, bemoaned that Herrera, in an act of political desperation, would base her campaign on something totally false and slanderous against the candidate from the opposition. Apparently the relationship between Herrera and Martinelli is anything but warm, because the two candidates have avoided one another and have not agreed to appear together in any of the debates or forums to which they have been invited. This situation was evident during the debate programmed at the College of Lawyers where neither of the two attended.

El candidato presidencial de la Alianza por el Cambio, Ricardo Martinelli.

Alma Cortés, abogada de la campaña política de Ricardo Martinelli, candidato de la Alianza por el Cambio, anunció que la próxima semana presentarán una demanda civil y penal contra la candidata del Partido Revolucionario Democrático, Balbina Herrera, acusar falsamente a su candidato de asesino.

Cortés indicó que la demanda que será interpuesta luego de los carnavales, responde a una cuña que ha sido difundida desde ayer martes en los medios de comunicación, en la cual hacen señalamientos sobre la gestión de Martinelli como director de la Caja de Seguro Social.

La abogada asegura que no pedirán la suspensión de la cuña, ya que la misma es una muestra de lo que es capaz de hacer Balbina Herrera con tal de lograr sus propósitos.

Por último, manifestó su interés por saber cuál será la opinión del ex presidente Ernesto Pérez Balladares, pues las acusaciones hechas por su copartidaria contra Martinelli, también se refieren a su administración.

Por su parte, Jimmy papadimitriu, jefe de campaña de Martinelli, lamento que Herrera en un acto de desesperación político saque una campaña totalmente falsa y calumniosa contra el candidato de la oposición.

Al parecer la relación entre Herrera y Martinelli no es para nada cordial, ya que los candidatos han evitado coincidir y presentarse juntos en los diferentes debates y foros a los que han sido invitados. Situación que fue evidente durante el debate programado en el Colegio de Abogados donde ninguno de los dos se dirigió la palabra.
