Diego Manuel Villanueva Martinelli, nephew of the former President Ricardo Martinelli, is being investigated by the fourth anti-corruption prosecutor for alleged irregularities in contracts issued by the government Department of Science, Technology and Innovation (Senacyt).

He is being investigated for irregularities in a contract for a feasibility study for the construction of a complex of buildings in Clayton. The allegations is that the state paid twice for the same work, which cost $250,000.

The beneficiary of the alleged irregular payments was Grupo Corcione, a company owned by Panama Canal Authority Director Nicolas Corcione, and Inversiones Carmanace.

The Prosecutor's Office is also investigating former Senacyt Director Rubén Berrocal, a cousin of the former president, Carmen Rodríguez Acosta, the legal representative of Carmanace, and former Senacyt official Alexander Hernández Valenzuela. All of them have been called for questioning by prosecutors.
