justice system in panama broken ?

justice delayed is justice denied. The Panamanian “justice” system is completely broken in so many ways it’s not funny. You point out the case of OJ Simpson, and I would say the case of Toni Grossi Abrams and Debra Ann Ridgley are a perfectly accurate repeat that occurred right here in Panama (Ridgley was found innocent by a jury trial despite overwhelming evidence against her.) And, there are all kinds of problems in the US justice system as well that definitely should not be imported here. My primary complaint with the Panamanian system is the speed it takes for cases to go before a judge. The prosecutors and courts simply do not have enough money, people, and resources to handle the work load and the cases back up. When they finally do get around to hearing a case, for the most part they get the right answer. However, that can take forever. And, in politically charged cases then if you’re on the wrong side of the politics, you lose. If you have enough money, you win. Those are my complaints with the Panamanian system. I just wish the government would spend more money to open more courts and hire more people to move the cases along faster.
