The Public Prosecutor conducts Meeting with representatives of the United States Embassy

Representatives of the United States Embassy in Panama on Tuesday held a meeting with authorities of the Public Prosecutor's Office in the province of Chiriquí. Roxana Terrero Suira, First Superior Prosecutor of Chiriqui, expressed her appreciation for the support offered by the Embassy, saying that what is important in this cooperative relationship for both is to be able to attack crime.

During the meeting, appreciation was expressed for the support and backing that the institution has provided in different cases where their fellow citizens have been victims, specifically as it relates to the fact where there has been loss of life from natural causes during their stay in this province; support of the Public Prosecutor's office, which has led to the strengthening of much more collaborative work between the two entities.

For his part, Humberto Rodríguez Batista, Prosecuting Attorney Coordinator of the Section of Murder/Femicide said he maintains excellent communication with the staff of the Embassy, for the great work being done by the Attorney General's Office of International Affairs of the Office of the Attorney General of the Nation; that this office is responsible for filing the corresponding links to make the communications on the cases that have been investigated in the Prosecutor's office, resulting in the resolution of cases promptly and effectively; highlighted by the Prosecutor.

Brayan Weiler and Eliceda Meléndez, said they were extremely grateful for the support received by the Public Ministry, and that as an Embassy, are ready to collaborate in all and each one of the cases as required by the Public Ministry, since the important thing for them is to cope with, and attack crime in all its senses.

The meeting was carried out in the facilities of the building of the Public Prosecutor's office in the city of David.

Interesting report from the ministry. One of the things I find most interesting is the apparent distinction between "murder" and "femicide."

I know I'm being picky here, but femicide IS murder. There's no reason to use two words here except to suggest that the murder of a man is different from that of a woman. To me, murder is murder even though there may be different degrees of murder that carry different penalties. Strange concept.
