Cordoba sentenced to 42 months in prison

Temas:

Former Ministry of Health official Grimaldo Cordoba was sentenced to 42 months in prison today by a Sixteenth Criminal Court judge.

His defence lawyer, Eudocia Guerra, said that the sentence does not conform to law and will be appealed.

Cordoba was charged with practicing medicine without a license. The lawyer stressed that his client did not have a medical license, but added, "there was no unlawful exercise of functions."

Cordoba was the former director of Health Promotion. He resigned in January after being accused of not having a medical license. He was charged in March.

The hearing today was closed by the order of Judge Enrique Pérez.

Cordoba is a former alternate for Panameñista Deputy Luis Eduardo Quirós in the 8-8 circuit and ran unsuccessfully for deputy in the last election.
