On 26 July, La Prensa reported that Pegasus had been used in the country from 2012 and it was used until May 2014, according to information from the Attorney General’s Office. Its use was said to have cost $8 million.  The use of Pegasus is said to be an important element in the trial of former President Martinelli.   Evidence earlier in the case had involved the negotiation with the NSO Group by the country’s national security council (CSN) re the installation of Pegasus and the training of the personnel who would use it, and for “the collection and collection of information on mobile devices for the exclusive use of the Government of Panama”.
