The president of the Supreme Court, Harley Mitchell said that he will find the way and the mechanism to process the 205 files of the case in an speedy manner.

Mitchell explained that he could not intervene in the decision of other judges, but he is conscious that this tragedy needs to receive special attention.

Currently the main file of the massive case of poisoning of La Caja del Seguro Social patients is in process at the Penal Court of the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, Supreme Judge Wilfredo Saenz of the Second Tribunal ordered further investigation in the case of the confrontation that happened between the police and the family of the victims of dietileneglycol poisoning.

In 2006 an error in the labeling of several packages of raw material prepared abroad and that were sent to the Laboratory of Medicine Production of the Social Security office, through a Panamanian company, caused a syndrome that cost the lives of 444 Panamanians and left another 219 incapacitated.
