A forensic audit has been ordered by Comptroller Federico Humbert of the finances of former Minister of Health Franklin Vergara.

The decision was made in the wake of a La Prensa article that documented the vast increase of the wealth of the former minister during the 33 months he was in office.

Humbert issued instructions that the audit should "clarify the facts by appointing experts, carrying out inspections, receiving testimony and any other tests allowed under the law."

Vergara has been accused of hiding assets from required declarations and conflict of interest in making appointments within the ministry by hiring friends of the sons of President Ricardo Martinelli to key positions.
