National Assembly Returns Controversial Bill 415 To Committee (Mining in Ngäbe Bugle Region)

Gold & MiningThe Commerce Commission of the National Assembly, chaired by Deputy Raul Hernandez, decided to keep Bill 415, which establishes the regime on mining in the Ngäbe Bugle region in "first debate" at the committee level. Deputy Hernandez explained that since the Bill has not reached the floor of the National Assembly he can retain the Bill at the committee level for review. He said they are waiting to start a dialogue with the indigenous Ngäbe Bugle people, who have kept the Inter American highway blocked for six days. The highway was reopened by force with the intervention of the riot control units of the National Police. This confrontation left one dead and 39 wounded. (Telemetro)

Editor's Comment: Blink. This is the Bill the Indians are protesting about, because they insist on the inclusion of their "Article 5". Now with this announcement the National Assembly is saying they committee can meet with and negotiate with the protesting Indians, to try to find a solution to the problem.
