Panama Government to Sue Brazilian Company Odebrecht Over Bribery Cases

PANAMA - The Government of Panama on Tuesday decided that it will become a complainant in the investigation conducted by the Attorney General into the Brazilian construction company Odebrecht over the alleged payment of bribes to former officials.

In a meeting of the council of ministers, the government endorsed filing a complaint "so that the different institutions that may be affected are part of the process, actively collaborate and recover diverted funds," according to an official statement.

The Panamanian Public Prosecutor's Office (OTP) reported that it had filed money-laundering charges against the first 17 people linked to Odebrecht's bribes in the country, saying they are "three former employees, eight Panamanian businessmen, five Foreign businessmen and one private banking official".
