Editor's Comment: This one doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Ricardo Martinelli either owns or controls the Panama America newspaper. And he also controls the Supreme Court. So what's the motivation for this decision? The money means nothing, he can pay that off with the walking around change he keeps in his pocket. In this country politics is everything, and the only thing I can fathom is that maybe this decision is some sort of a change-up to pave the way for a fastball that's coming later, to be thrown against another news media outlet that's not owned or controlled by Martinelli, like La Prensa or Telemetro. There's more to this one than meets the eye, I just don't know what it is yet. Spadafora is a Panameņista from the Mireya Moscoso camp. That might have something to do with it.
