Tuesday, October 23, 2012 – QNews Central America | Source:  Prensa Latina

The Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Panama denounced human rights violations by the police in Colon province, and reasserted there would be a strike for 48 hours starting on Monday. The Chamber said in a communiqué that the strike can be extended until the Panamanian government suspends its measure to sell land from the Colon Duty-Free Zone.

The communiqué said the decision was made after the approval of Draft Bill 529, which caused a spiral of violence in Panama.

The entrepreneurs will not accept the government’s disregard of the position by the people of Colon, and repudiate the excessive use of force against those who protested peacefully.

In the communiqué, they expressed their grieve for the death of a child and the disrespectful statements by the President of the National Assembly, Sergio Galvez, who sent opponents to go home.

The Chamber of Commerce set as a condition to end the strike the derogation of the law, signed by President Ricardo Martinelli.
