Predators roam in a country on its knees

Question raised over the final cost og modular hospital

The recently built modular hospital is a great achievement in the midst of the pandemic that has put the country on its knees for more than two months. However, experience has shown that society must be vigilant of government purchases, even those aimed at confronting the new virus, as we have discovered that even under these pressing circumstances, some politicians do not give up their businesses. This new hospital, in the opinion of businessmen in the field, seems to be overpriced and it would be healthy if, for the sake of transparency, an audit were carried out, since the evidence found is no small matter. Although the country was not prepared to face a health, economic and social crisis of this magnitude, the authorities now, more than ever, must make our resources be invested at the lowest possible cost without sacrificing quality. Unfortunately, it is not what we are witnessing.-LA PRENSA, May 15.

Panamá has a harsh penalty for offering a bribe to a cop. I'd rsther pay my ticket than go to La Joya for 4 years.

Jbbrown: Whomever pays a bribe is complicit in corruption, and I refuse to do so. If you break the law, pay the ticket. Price gouging does exist (Panama is hardly unique in this) and the best defense is to learn prices and speak some Spanish. When hiring workers, get it in writing.

Predators roam all over Panama and not all of them are Panamanian. Stealing, cheating, killing that is the game here. Gringos are the low hanging fruit and are cheated often. The police in Panama are counted in the predator group as they will always try and get a bribe from a gringo.
