Editor's Comment: Now two of the old justices that had been appointed by the Panameñista former president Mireya Moscoso are gone, and two more of Ricardo Martinelli's boys from the Cambio Democratico political party have taken their place. This further tightens Martinelli's control over the Supreme Court, and you can expect there to be further actions on old corruption cases that have been pending against his PRD and Panameñista political rivals. Moncada Luna promised there would be a separation of powers between the Judiciary and the Executive branches, and he managed to do it with a straight face.
