Panama to tackle crime in troubled province

Thursday, April 20, 2017

Panama’s security strategies will be strengthened to deal with an end to organized crime, said President Juan Carlos Varela at the end of a  Security Council meeting in the province of Colón.

Varela classified the province as a challenge for the Panamanian state in criminal matters, following the latest violence when a national soccer team player and a companion were gunned down.

The president was planning to attend the funeral of soccer player Amílcar Henríquez, who was shot and killed over the weekend.
