Public Prosecutor Guido Rodríguez today requested Comptroller Federico Humbert audit all public works and government infrastructure projects carried out by the Brazilian company Norberto Odebrecht in the period 2009-2014.

According to the public prosecutor, an audit is required, since Odebrecht officials admitted to the United States Department of Justice that it paid bribes to Panamanian officials of $59 million during that period.

Rodríguez added that, according to the documents, the company's profits for that period were $175 million.

The prosecutor stated that the comptroller is legally obligated to investigate alleged cases of corruption.

Odebrecht was fined $2 billion by U.S., Swiss and Brazilian officials for its role in bribery schemes. The company used offshore companies to pay bribes to officials in a dozen countries.
