This was announced yesterday by Alfredo Arias, ShowPro executive manager, who said he will not hire the Puerto Rican in the future for a presentation on Panamanian soil.
According to Arias, the Puerto Rican singer's future concerts in Isthmian soil will have to be done by his competition.
Arias, who yesterday reiterated that the $130,000 was deposited into the account of Don Omar, presented documents confirming the economic transaction that took place days before the Carnival. "The money was in fact in the account of Don Omar," Arias said.
The documents presented yesterday by the businessman indicates that the money first went into the account of the promoter Relentless Agency, represented by Juan Toro, and the money was then transferred to the account of the performer.
On Thursday, February 14, according to what is contained in the documents, Don Omar returned the money to the account of the developer Relentless Agency.
Yesterday, Arias said this evidence had not been presented before because until Thursday, Juan Toro sent him written information that underpins the monetary deposit.
According to the manager of ShowPro, the $38,000 the company disbursed for airfare must be returned by the winner of several Grammy awards.
On Wednesday, Don Omar said in an interview on the TVN News morning edition, that he had not seen any money nor a contract to be in Panama on Tuesday 12 February at the end of Carnival City.
As a replacement, Wisin y Yandel gave a concert for an hour and a half at the end of the Carnival celebrations.
Solomon Shamah, administrator of the Panama Tourism Authority (ATP), said the entity will pay $250 000 and ShowPro will have to assume the cost difference.
A Report Will Be Issued - Three days after the end of Carnival in the City "Discovery 2013", the Comptroller General of the Republic asked the Tourism Authority of Panama (ATP) for a report of expenses during the holidays enjoying a budget of $2.95 million.
This request, according to the administrator of the ATP, arrived yesterday at the offices of the entity, and it is expected next week, upon completion tabulation of all invoices, that they will submit the report to the Comptroller.

Editor's Comment: If he doesn't apologize, you're going to sue? For what, an apology? Grandstanding. He returned the money. ShowPro won't represent him in the future. It's over. Chill.
