Petaquilla gets sued and makes senseless contradictory statements about who owns and contracted what and who and where, while we hear more and more stories about bouncing cheques.
Legal trouble has once again been mounting for Richard Fifer, the former drug trafficker behind the Petaquilla gold mine, and we're told he moved to Spain where he runs new sleazy schemes.
Part two of a series based on leaked documents from the Petaquilla goldmine. How Richard Fifer took a loan, and then tried to run with the money.
A leaked cache of documents shows that Petaquilla's Richard Fifer is, among other things, a convicted cocaine dealer.
Did he, after weeks of battling it out in the streets with a furious Ngöbe Buglé population, tens of wounded, millions in damages, expelled journalists, an international storm of criticism and polls showing that a majority of Panamanians is against mining, finally see the light? We don't really believe that.
According to its own environmental impact study, an emergency tank should already have been there in January, before they started operations. Why Petaquilla was allowed to start operating without having complied with that condition in an area that gets vast amounts of rain year-round is anyone's guess.
Drug trafficker Richard Fifer is making a come-back at Petaquilla and immediately the stock sinks. The umpteenth episode in this endless soap about a wannabe goldmine.
