Former head of MUHC injured in prison riot: report


There are reports that Dr. Arthur Porter has been injured in a prison riot in Panama.

His family tells CBC that the accused fraudster was hurt while escaping tear gas and police bullets.

Porter has been in prison since his arrest in May 2013 at the airport in Panama City.

He's fighting extradition back to Canada for his alleged role in a bribery and kickback scandal involving the MUHC.

    BS a person that is presumably dying of cancer and not receiving proper cancer can survive a prison riot and escape a prison riot smells of the same crap he pulled off here basically called a snow job. Also just scanned the Panamanian newspapers and not one mentions anything about this so called riot. Next we will here about Panama taking him out of the prison if he is even there for his own safety and then he will disappear with his millions. As usual money talks.
