Saul Mendez, the Secretary of the SUNTRACS union, described the prosecutor's decision as "passing the bill," due to the open opposition the unions have made against the government of President Ricardo Martinelli.
In the call to trial, the prosecutor who is charge of the dossier seeks to determine irregularities in the management of $165,320 from education insurance.
Among those being brought to trial are the leaders of the SUNTRACS union, and the National Council of Organized Workers (CONATO).
They Call For Workers To Be Released - In response to the "preventative detenion" ordered by the Auxiliary Prosecutor against several construction workers who participated in the protest against Law 72, that ended in acts of looting and vandalism on October 26, yesterday Mendez requested they release, saying there is no evidence against them, and they have already paid bail.
