PANAMA. Tourism and conventions are an important industry for Panama but in our eagerness to attract visitors, and with a growing perception that everything goes on the Isthmus some activities have developed, that will come as an unwelcome surprise to many citizens.

Not only scam artists, real estate fraudsters and narco trafficking mules are landing at Tocumen International airport.

Attracted by talk of easy ways to salt away profits from questionable business activities, and the belief that the forces of law and order will look the other way, Panama City has been home to some questionable convention delegates to its hotels and casinos in recent years.

That happy group of tourists sipping champagne at the next table in an exclusive restaurant, may not be people you would like to invite home to dinner.

Starting tomorrow, La Estrella and Panama Star will be carrying the exclusive results of a lengthy study by its Investigative Team.

Don’t miss “Panama’s Shame.”
