Panama building permit revoked due to citizen power
Citizen power got a major boost with the decision of Panama’s Third Civil Circuit Court to revoke a building permit approved by the Mayor’s Works and Constructions Directorate for the Sea Point project, in Paitilla.
The decision, dated August 11 says that the building adjoins the Bay of Panama and “stands on a bank of beach not subject to private appropriation.”
The judicial action was received with jubilation by Paitilla residents and civic groups, whose fight against the project led to the annulment.
