Cortizo says that in his administration "there have not been and will not be given" illegal wiretaps
"It is not an issue for our administration," said the President of the Republic, Laurentino Cortizo, about the illegal wiretapping.
The Panamanian president, Laurentino Cortizo assured that in his administration no illegal wiretaps have been carried out.
Cortizo was approached about why during his administration the decree that created the National Security Council has not been modified. It was established during the administration of the former President of the Republic, Ricardo Martinelli.
From the point of view of intelligence it is important, but that in my administration we don't dedicate efforts and resources to be listening people outside of court orders. I can guarantee the country that in my administration it has not happened or will not happen, I want that It is clear that in my administration, wiretaps outside of court orders have not occurred or will not occur, said President Laurentino Cortizo.
Currently, former President Martinelli faces a new oral trial for crimes of espionage without a court order during his administration.
