"There are still questions about the cost overruns for the acquisition of a couple of services,” said the minister. Henriquez also questioned Portugal’s attitude and said that someone who is being questioned cannot “challenge” the forum in charge of evaluating or judging her.
"I feel we are in the beginning of the end of her permanency in the institution (...) we have still not received a satisfactory explanation of why they had to pay exorbitant costs for services that have never cost so much in Panama before," he said.
In this regard, he said the Assembly is the one that can remove her, but if there are other elements such as investigations, the decision could be in the hands of another entity. Therefore, Henriquez paraphrased the Democratic Revolutionary Party deputy Elias Castillo, who said yesterday that Portugal's days were numbered, because he does not believe she can handle the questions.
Portugal was at the National Assembly on Thursday for five hours, giving her explanation after all the questions she was being asked for the controversial contracts awarded by the entity directed by her. (Prensa)
