Former DMC chief executive arrested in Panama
Dr. Arthur Porter, the CEO of Detroit Medical Center from 1999 through 2003, was arrested in Panama this week and awaits extradition to Canada to face multiple criminal charges in connection with an alleged scandal involving a hospital project in Montreal. Porter and his wife, Pamela Porter, were arrested Monday and the extradition process remains under way, said Anne Frederick Laurence, a spokeswoman for Quebec's anti-corruption unit UPAC. Canadian authorities issued an arrest warrant for Porter in February on charges of fraud, conspiracy, breach of trust, taking secret commissions and money laundering. He and his wife were also charged Monday with laundering the proceeds of a crime.
