The family and lawyers for former Panama President Ricardo Martinelli called again for his release from jail after he was hospitalised for a second time since his extradition from the United States last month.
His wife, Marta de Martinelli, said he was hospitalised Monday evening with high blood pressure and other problems.
She said the stress of pre-trial confinement and the hearings are jeopardising his health.
So far the courts have not agreed to free him pending trial.
