From today's Ahora

Panama's first Anti-Corruption Public Prosecutor, Mercedes de Leon, demanded a trial against several former government officials during Mireya Moscoso's mandate for their participation in the illegal departure from the country of terrorist Luis Posada Carriles.

De Leon requested to initiate proceedings against former Justice Minister Arnulfo Escalona, former chief of the National Police Carlos Bares, and former deputy director of Immigration, Javier Tapia, reported La Prensa daily newspaper.

According to Prensa Latina news agency, the decision was made public after the conclusion of an extended probe into the case requested by the Twelfth Penal Court of Panama.

Posada Carriles and three of his accomplices were arrested in Panama as they were planning an assassination attempt against Cuban President Fidel Castro during the Iberian-American Summit that took place in 2000.

''They'll take away your TV and your appliances if they catch you watching'' Univisión, he said.

His brother Miguel, 27, says the punishment may be worse now that Castro's health is in doubt.

''And now, since this happened, they'll probably put you in prison,'' Miguel said."
