Justice of the Peace in Colon (Corregidor) Arrested In Anti Corruption Sting

CorruptionThe Justice of the Peace of Cristobal in the province of Colon, Fidel Cerrud, was arrested yesterday afternoon for the crime of extortion against the Colombian Luis Cabrales, who has a case against him for fraud. The alleged incident occurred at about 5:30 pm at a restaurant located in the Plaza 2000. The Colombian filed a complaint with the Public Ministry, alleging the mayor told him if Cerrud paid this cash, he would deliver a document that did not prevent him from leaving the country. Officials from the Public Ministry and the Direction of Judicial Investigation (DIJ) participated in the undercover operation that surprised the city official with $400 in cash with bills that had been marked. This process is just beginning and statements from the Mayor of the District of Colon, Damaso Garcia, and the defense lawyer for Justice of the Peace Cerrud are expected. A similar case occurred with the representative of Sabanitas, Marcos Valdes, who complained he had been framed. (Panama America)
