Hillarious - "Mireya Moscoso Defends the PARLACEN"

Corruption By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Today in the Panama America there appears and article with the title "La ex presidenta Moscoso defiende al Parlacen", (Former President Moscoso Defends the Parlacen). Of course she does. All former presidents of nations who are members of the Central American Parliament (Parlacen) automatically become representatives to the Parlacen as soon as they leave office. And, they remain representatives for ten years. And, as long as they are representatives to the Parlacen, they are granted immunity from prosecution. Mireya Moscoso was the President of Panama from 1999 to 2004. Therefore, if Panama remains as a member of the Parlacen, she would enjoy this immunity for another five years. And what's more, normally the statute of limitations for the investigation and prosecution for any potential acts of corruption committed under her administration would have elapsed by 2014, when her Parlacen protection would have normally elapsed. "He who is now sweating" is Ernesto Perez Balladares, who was the President of Panama from 1994 to 1999, so he's fair game whether Panama leaves the Parlacen or not. But Mireya Moscoso is sweating it hard. Ricardo Martinelli is going after all of the old cases of corruption he can find. Because the people want him to. Because these guys have always been "untouchable." Because it's a smart move, politically speaking. Because if they keep this up for five years, the Cambio Democratico will repeat in 2014. All of the old corrupt dinosaurs are shaking in their boots. Martinelli simply is not respecting the unwritten political rules that have controlled this country since the 1940's. He scares them, and of course they have reason to be scared. "Moscoso defends the Parlacen..." I bet she does...
