La Prensa cartoonist take on the shelters (albergues) scandal

PERHAPS there are more subtle ways to bury one of the biggest scandals of this government: the abuses suffered by minors in shelters subsidized by the National Secretariat for Children, Adolescents and Family (Senniaf), but it is clear that the intention is to turn the page without major consequences.

 The State subsidizes 42 shelters throughout the country, with a population of about 905 minors under its care. Although the surface has barely been scratched, this scandal has faded into the background. And in order not to continue shaking the waters, the President of the Republic continues without appointing a director for Senniaf, and the Assembly has not agreed on a date for the Minister of Social Development and the former Deputy Director of Senniaf, today turned governor of the province of Panama. Citizens still do not know for sure, or we get to know by droppers, who is involved in the abuses and what is the responsibility of the detained people or to whom they respond. Meanwhile, in the Public Ministry, the investigations are progressing slowly and those investigated are far from being the "big guns" supposedly involved. In other words, we are almost like the first week of the scandal. – LA PRENSA, Apr. 3

Panama: Cortizo Administration Future Party - Nation Side. United States - China - Russia: Panama defense takeover strategy facts: 1. U.S. has provided Panama with independence from Columbia with payments for peaceful rights. 2. Panama Canal / Carter Treaty is still in effect with the U.S. as main security with elite military forces. 3. U.S. has provided for the financial operation of the canal at Panama's revenue profits. 4. U.S. made the bid for the construction of an expanded canal and lost the bid to a low bid Spanish Consortium with insufficient capital to purchase the necessary amount of cement. - Panama suffers penalty losses of...$1million per day to a total of $400 million, - Panama however, saves over $200 million on average per year for the remainder of the last 2 years completion date. - Panama receives $millions in compensation for loans made to the Spanish Consortium uncompleted work on set date. 5. Panama's expansion canal revenue profits did nothing to provide for the enhancement of Panama citizens welfare with shortages of medicines and the guarantee of Social Security was not sufficient to cover retirement benefits among other fiascos as corruption of state funds. 6. Former president Varela visit China with... 26 non - transparent agreements. 7. Varela's $600 million renovation project for Colon was not sufficiently used with transparency. 8. Former president Martinelli began the theft of PAN with his Secretary Obarrio who fled Panama while Martinelli enjoyed his $14 million Israel Pegasus spy equipment as he began to monitor every political legal influencer as a threat. 9. President Cortizo cleanup corruption campaign for the Untouchables became exactly that... Untouchables! 10. United States has monitored the money laundering schemes of Martinelli and sons and has the Martinelli sons detained for extradition to the U.S. for the appropriate corruption charges. - U.S. has monitored major and numerous corruptions of previous and present administrations for further investigations to address issues with Panama on the Grey and Black international lists. 11. Panama campaign during Varela administration last years was to reform the badly needed Constitution made void by president of Panama Cortizo. 12. Panama has been under lock down not only due to the Coronavirus but with the suppression of peaceful protesters against state level corruption from the Panama National Assembly! P.N.A. has a new term General Comptroller on their side for non-transparency of the state's allocated funds from the Panama tax payers...a possible self enrichment club operation? A possible reoccurrence of Venezuela dictatorship may be forming in the small isthmus of... Panama as greater losses of state funds benefits are more and more...depleted. Conclusion: Panama president Cortizo has never been held accountable for his administration's actions. Panama may be forming an underground operation with financial and military support from China and Russia respectively.

Panama: Freemason Objective Vs Illuminati Ideology. Founder of Illuminati was disbanded and his influence died with persecution of followers. A more accurate study does not reveal any major influence by the illuminati and therefore, any mention of a secret society attempts to control governments and the Catholic church lacks any bases. Misinformation due to the drama added to the iluminati movement conspiracies. Yet...Freemasons with one prominent figure, President George Washington among others with religious tolerance was not acceptable to the Catholic Church. Whether it was an unforgivable sin is another matter left to the Catholic Church.
