Editor's Comment: Dumbfounded. Gobsmacked. Astounded. Flabbergasted. Stupefied. If Franklin Oduber is acting in concert with Ricardo Martinelli on this one, it will be the end of the Cambio Democratico political party. If he's acting alone, then that means he knows where the bodies (illegal titles) are buried in Panama, and who was behind the massive land grabs this government has been conducting. Rather than giving more power to the ANATI, the government should give them less. All titles that have been issued by this organization should be immediately FROZEN. An outside organization such as the Public Ministry or the Comptroller should be conducting an in depth AUDIT, as the result of an executive order. The fact of the matter is, folks - this government has stolen hundreds if not thousands of hectares of land worth millions if not billions of dollars, and now this guy has the balls to ask for more power? The week after having received a criminal complaint about the land grab in Punta Chame? And after they have been informed about the complaints that are about to be dropped on their heads from other similar cases around the country. It makes no sense. There are only two options. Either Martinelli is in on it, and he's doing it all himself. Or, Oduber is acting on his own, and he's looking to execute on the leverage (intelligence information about the land grabs) to parlay that into a more secure job for himself.
