Homicides up 27% in “citizen security” era

Posted 22/05/2020

Quarantine and curfew restrictions in the wake of the pandemic have not slowed the rise in homicides with an increase of close to 27%  so far this year. From January 1 to May 14, , there were  217 killings.

January with 65 was the month with the most murders While February and March had 43  apiece and in April there were 32.

Feminicide
 
Meanwhile, between May 1 and 14, there were 34  homicides including 15 femicides.

Five of these cases were committed in the Ngäbe Bugle region, four in Panama, three in Panama Oeste, two in Chiriquí, and one in Coclé.

There were  171 homicides in the first five months of 2019, with May being the month with the most crimes: 38.

The figures show an increase of 26.9% this year.

Most of this year's homicides have been committed in Panama and PanamaOeste. Panama has already displaced Colon as the main killing ground and focus of criminal incidents. 

Security authorities say most are linked to gang warfare and the dispute over drug trafficking routes. They even emphasize that this year they have seized more drugs than the previous ones.

“We are not going to be soft.  We already started in Colón, with 33 raids. There is a legal and strategic alliance with the Public Ministry for these actions. We have a solid public force, ”said the Minister of Public Security, Juan Pino, on Thursday, May 21 after making a tour of the police areas of Alcalde Díaz and Chilibre.

The tour took place a day after he participated with the head of the National Police, Jorge Miranda, and other heads of security groups in a meeting with Vice President José Gabriel Carrizo.

Pino is the second security minister of the  Cortizo government committed to “citizen security” The first was  Rolando Mirones, who left the entity in February, after the scandal of the escape of multiple murderer Gilberto Ventura Ceballos from La Joya prison.

59 murders  in May brings total this year to 242

homicide.jpg

Posted 03/06/2020

 With hundreds of police officers allocated to control measures linked to the pandemic Panama  gang warfare continued  through May with  59 homicides bringing the total for the year  to  242 an increase of 67 over the same period last year.

Executions have dominated with assassins  oblivious to  the coronavirus quarantine

The first killings  were on   May 3  in Colón, where two DJs were gunned  down, after they made their last presentation through social networks.

In total, 11 people were killed during during  month in Colón bringing  the  provincial total for the year to 41.

On May 7 the bodies of three men whom they executed were found in the community of El Líbano, , West Panama.

On May 11 the devil was unleashed 10 people were killed  including a man who was one of the most wanted in the country andwas  in an exclusive residential area  in Condado del Rey.

Hours later, the bullets rang out in the El Chumical area in Vacamonte, Arraiján district. Four bodies were found in a grassland area. Each had received  more than 10 bullets

Before the day ended  two brothers and a woman were shot in a  Los Santos home.. They were at home when gunmen shot them.

The death of a 73 year old schoolteacher who was killed  and cut into pieces by her daughter y was one of the few killings unrelated to gang warfare.

Jorge Miranda, director of the National Police, said that the  current situation stemmed from  the  gang battle in La Joya Prison  where 13 inmates died in  December 2019

Criminologist Aida Selles said "The crime is only going to be reasonably reduced, it is not going to be eradicated. Crime does not disappear, it only changes."

"The increase in homicides is indicating to us that violence in Panama is already a way of life, as a way of solving problems, whether due to drug trafficking, gangs or domestic violence," said criminologist  Marcos Álvarez.
