Editor's Comment: Good. Finally. I asked the Public Ministry to do this on 20 March 2012, now almost two months ago. The local prosecutors who are scattered throughout the country, called the "Personería", are literally the lowest ranking members in the pecking order of the Public Ministry. There's no way the local guy on Isla Colon has the experience, training, resources, or capabilities to adequately or sufficiently handle this case. I recognized this immediately and advised (strongly suggested) that the case should be elevated to the Superior Prosecutor in Chiriqui. And, I'm glad to see they finally got around to getting it done.
