Customs Director Says Indians Are "Intransigent" and "Protesting Violently"

Gold & MiningCustoms Director Gloria Moreno de Lopez, said the indigenous protesters are intransigent and protest violently, so it would be justified if the government does not allow them to keep the Inter American Highway closed. Lopez Moreno said the state must guarantee the free movement (for all citizens) and the Inter American Highway is an international route, and the country's image has declined to the point where many people are hesitant to come to Panama for Carnival and Easter. The Director of the Customs Authority said more than $3 million dollars has been lost in products that had to remain refrigerated, while expressing concern for the people who have been stranded on the road. López Moreno believes the protesters are protesting in a violent manner, and are uncompromising in demanding that the development of mining and hydroelectric power be prohibited in the entire country.
