Panama Papers money laundering hearing stalled

Moves by the defense team of the lawyers at the heart of the Panama Papers scandal have led to the second suspension of the preliminary hearing of a process for alleged money laundering.

The hearing for Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca Mora, the founding partners of the former firm Mossack Fonseca (MF), and 32 other people  was scheduled for yesterday but suspended due to the presentation of a warning of unconstitutionality and the appeal of a nullity incident by defense attorneys, Newsroom Panama reports.

The hearing was scheduled for Tuesday, December 10, but suspended due to the presentation of a warning of unconstitutionality and the appeal of a nullity incident by defense attorneys.

In November the hearing could not be carried out because one of the accused changed his lawyer and asked for more time to get acquainted with the file.
