Yesterday the legal counsel of David Murcia's DMG money laundering and Ponzi scheme, Margarita Pabon, was extradited from Colombia to the United States, where she faces charges of money laundering. Murcia himself is already in the US on similar charges, after having been arrested in Panama and first extradited to Colombia.
As soon as the news of Margarita Pabon's extradition became known, the server of the Public Registry in Panama "crashed".
The last time that happened was when president Martinelli's cousin and campaign finance manager Ramón Martinelli was arrested in Mexico on money laundering charges, together with other Martinelli associates.
Insiders in Panama suggest that in both cases panic struck and the corporate registry databases had to be cleaned, in other words, evidence removed or altered that would tie the president to the two drug money laundering cases and the corporate shells used in Panama to facilitate those.
El País, a Costa Rican paper, earlier reported that Martinelli associate and now tourism minister Salamon Shamah served as a conduit for donations to the Martinelli campaign by David Murcia to the tune of $800,000.
The Colombian case - Murcia et al - and the Mexican case - Ramón Martinelli Corro laundering money for the Beltrán Leyva cartel - are connected through Martinelli. Both cases are no doubt receiving the serious attention of US law enforcement. It is unknown what exactly Murcia and Martinelli Corro are telling the authorities, but, with the US government trying to take away spying equipment from the Martinelli administration and a number of other clues, what do YOU think is going on?
