This Saturday, the freedom court of Naples confirmed that the arrest warrant for the businessman and former director of the Italian newspaper Avanti, Valter Lavítola is legitimate, reported the AFP. Lavítola is accused of corruption and having bribed the former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and the President of Panama to obtain lucrative contracts, according to a summary of the investigation published by the Italian press.
Greco spoke to the journalist Joan Solés, a correspondent for Panama Radio in Italy, who interviewed him about the investigation against Lavítola, a key figure in the negotiations between Panama and Finmeccanica, and who is accused of having paid bribes to Panamanian public servants within the failed negotiation to build modular prisons in Panama.

Lavítola, replied on February 19 at 12:23 hours with a terse message: "ok. Thank you."

The Panamanian newspaper La Prensa published Tuesday that an investigation by prosecutors in the Italian city of Naples "identifies" Martinelli "as a person who received" allegedly on orders from Lavítola, "profits and sums of cash in connection with a failed contract to build four prisons" in Panama.
