Panama business leaders want inquiries into scandals

Friday, May 13, 2011

Business leaders and economists are asking the government of Panama to solve the crisis caused by scandals that involve leading officials.

In recent weeks scandals have emerged that involve the administrator of the Tourism Authority, Salomón Shamah; the head of the Public Hygiene Authority, Enrique  Ho; and the director of the National Migration Service, María Cristina González.

The country has so far based its growth on stability and on a scenario “in which investors have the confidence that the rules of the game will be applied to everyone, and that’s why transparency is so important,” said Irvin Halman, vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce.
