Won’t be Scape­goat for Scandal: Panama

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

The Pana­ma­nian gov­ern­ment said that it would not ac­cept the coun­try be­ing used as a “scape­goat” for the ap­par­ent fi­nan­cial mis­deeds de­tailed in the Panama Pa­pers. “We are not go­ing to al­low Panama to be used as a scape­goat by third par­ties. Each coun­try (im­pli­cated) is re­spon­si­ble,” pres­i­den­tial chief of staff Al­varo Ale­man said on Tues­day.

Panama “re­jects and re­grets” that any­one should want to “tram­ple” its good name, “con­ve­niently for­get­ting Model 3 pre-or­ders Cu­mu­la­tive Model S/X de­liv­er­ies the par­tic­i­pa­tion in off­shore op­er­a­tions of in­sti­tu­tions and in­di­vid­u­als of other na­tions”, Efe news agency quoted Ale­man as say­ing. Ale­man de­manded that me­dia take the time to “un­der­stand the situation in depth and avoid re­peat­ing com­mon­places and old prej­u­dices about our coun­try. “Panama has changed and we are pro­mot­ing dra­matic re­forms that can in no way be ig­nored,” Ale­man said.
