Carlos "Tito" Afu Wants To Testify in CEMIS Case

Corruption National Assembly Deputy Carlos "Tito" Afu attacked the leaders of the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD) this afternoon and said they were the main players in the CEMIS corruption scandal. According to Afu judicial authorities should investigate the bank accounts of the members of the PRD's National Executive Committee (CEN) of that time, when the corruption scandal broke in 2002. They should investigate "all who were in the CEN of the party", all of the leaders, including Martin Torrijos, Balbina Herrera and Laurentino Cortizo, Afu reiterated during a press conference held in the National Assembly. "It hurts me when they say this is a problem of Tito Afu," said the Deputy, a former member of the PRD. Afu said the CEMIS case is one of the biggest bribery scandals that have ever occurred in Panama, which involved all three branches of government. It was he who on 16 January 2002 - when he appeared on television waiving stacks of money - has said repeatedly that he was bribed in exchange for voting to approve the contract between the State and the Consorcio San Lorenzo, through which they were supposed to have developed the Multimodal Industrial and Services Center (CEMIS) in Colon. For this reason, he reiterated that he wants to be called to testify in the investigation of this case. (La Prensa)
