25 Colombian Hookers Rounded Up In Raids in Panama City

Immigration IssuesAbout 25 women, mostly Colombians, were discovered in a "prophylactic" operation offering sexual services in the streets and nightclubs, and not carrying any documentation. Agents of Municipal Surveillance and the Justice of the Peace on duty, Genaro Barcenas, were deployed in various parts of the capital. They raided massage parlors, bars, nightclubs and other establishments on Ave. Mexico and Peru, as well as Calle Uruguay and Via Veneto, among others. (El Siglo)

Editor's Comment: Ah, so now the guys from the Municipality of Panama City are getting into the act. Notice in the photo that the cops are wearing the brown uniforms of the Municipal police, the yellow and red vehicle is also owned by the municipality of Panama City, and the back of the vest also identifies them as being municipal police officers. So, this isn't a "normal" Colombian hooker raid. These "raids" are normally carried out by the National Immigration Service, but this one was done by "agents of municipal surveillance" whoever they are (that's a new one on me) as well as a local Justice of the Peace. I know that when these women are picked up by Immigration they are usually "squeezed" for about $1,000 in bribes to be let go with no charges. I don't know exactly how the Municipal angle works yet. Let me find out and I'll get back to you.

Judging by that fine specimen being escorted into the paddy wagon, maybe the local police weren’t after cash bribes.
