On PNO.com we have already expanded and commented on the recent logging issues and back handed concessions given by the person assigned to PROTECT the environment of Panama. Yet as I type, more activity is occurring dangerously and ominously close to protected hectares in Colon’, that yet again show the short sighted thinking of those in power to preserve and not prostitute the beauty of Panama. If you want a good prostitute, head to Habano’s people, where you don’t to find one is in an elected office of the government.
Whereas this story may seem it falls under the purview of (MICI) or the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, that is clearly a passing of the buck. This is an OBVIOUS environmental issue, as Panama continue to sell its soul in the form of National Park concessions, for the almighty dollar/balboa.
Please read La Prensa article that outlays the cavalier dealing of the forest region of Colon’ for the mining of copper.
Any comment coming from Minister of the Environment today??? Doubt it. He has his head up someone’s ass.
Wake up Panama!! This country does not have the hectares to be so flippant with while at the same time retaining the beauty of being a unique tropical country.
