So now, just in, the news that the French Senate gives Martinelli and his gangsters the big fat finger. Nada, niente, nitsjevo de ratification. The senators don't believe that Panama itself even has access to information it would have to share under that treaty.
Well, that's a first battle won by France right there if you ask us. Who wants to guarantee a loan by a bank as stupid as CitiBank for an even more stupid project - the metro - done by a government that will most likely just steal all the money and leave France holding the bag then anyway?
