REUTERS/Jorge Dan LopezPANAMA CITY (Reuters) - A Panamanian court has ordered a new trial of former President Ricardo Martinelli in a case alleging he unlawfully spied on politicians, union leaders and journalists during his 2009-2014 presidency, the country’s top prosecutor announced on Friday. The appeals court threw out Martinelli’s 2019 not guilty verdict, but did not set a date for the new trial. Prosecutor Ricaurte Gonzalez cited what he described as “an incorrect assessment of much of the evidence” presented at the previous trial. Martinelli maintained his innocence and accused his successor and one-time ally Juan Carlos Varela of conspiring against him.
