Bosco Vallarino ordered held under house arrest

He faces corruption charges. 

The Assistant Prosecutor's Office has issued a precautionary measure of house arrest for former Panama City Mayor Bosco Vallarino, who is being investigated for allegedly accepting a bribe.

The measure was taken after he underwent five hours of questioning at the Prosecutor's Office, in Calidonia.

In March, the auxiliary prosecutor started an inquiry after Vallarino confessed to having accepted an envelope with $6,000 in it during a sting operation orchestrated by the previous government to force him from office. He thought the money was from a contractor seeking a bid for the construction of a parking garage.

A video of Vallarino accepting the money started circulating on social media sites in February.
