Hearing rescheduled in Panama Papers case

Hearing rescheduled in Panama Papers case

The rescheduling of the preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 22 to December 17, 2021.
The preliminary hearing of the Panama Papers case, scheduled for today September 20, was set for November 22 to December 17, 2021, at 9:00 in the morning.

The rescheduling occurred because a lawyer presented a disability, and another technical defender, informed the Court that he could not attend due to legal representation commitments, in another case.

Faced with this situation, the Court appointed alternate public defenders in order to exercise the legal representation of the accused, in the event that private attorneys do not attend on the alternate date.

The Panama Papers or Panama Papers case arose after a journalistic investigation into the leak of documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, whose main business activity is presumed to be creating and managing offshore companies that were used for money laundering.

In this process, which began in 2016, some 55 citizens are charged with the alleged commission of the crime Against the Economic Order, in the form of Money Laundering.
