In a landmark ruling, for being the first since the launch of the new adversarial criminal justice system in the provinces of Cocle and Veraguas, a judge of guarantees issued a conviction in a murder case that occurred on Sunday, 18 December 2011. Eliécer Javier Ojo González, 20, a resident of El Entradero, and Alexis González, 27, a resident of San Juan de Dios, both communities located in the district of Anton, were sentenced on Wednesday, 21 December 2011, to serve 14 and a half years in prison for the aggravated murder to the detriment of Carlos Luis Moreno Gonzalez, who was stoned to death early Sunday morning. The victim was found on the side of the road leading to the community of El Entradero, where he lived. He had multiple head injuries and had been thrown into a ravine. The Public Ministry began their investigations and on 19 December, following several raids in the area, they were able to apprehend those involved. The hearing in the case was held on Wednesday.

Editor’s Comment: Holy Crap! A guy gets stoned to death on Sunday morning and his killers are caught, tried, and convicted in three days? That, my friends, is simply unheard of in Panama, until now. Wow. That was fast. Normally murder suspects can sit in prison for years and years awaiting trial. This was whiff, bam, boom. I think I’m going to like this new adversarial criminal justice system.
