Environmentalists Reject Ruling Against Protected Area in Panama Bay

Environmental IssuesMore than thirty of the major national environmental NGOs vigorously rejected today the decision of two judges of the Supreme Court to suspend the protected area status to the Bay of Panama. The incident was described as serious in a press conference by Rosabel Mirˇ, executive director of Audibom Panama, one of the NGOs calling to denounce and reject the arbitrary decision. Miro said that condition had been achieved after a long battle in 2003 when the Ramsar Convention included it in its list of wetlands of international importance and Panama agreed to conserve and protect areas of mangroves and mudflats of the Bay. Felix Wing Solis, executive director of CIAM Panama, said they are filing lawsuits to try to have the decision taken by two of the three main judges of the Third Chamber of the Court reversed, and the bay's status of protected area is restored. Environmentalists denounced that the suspension of the regulation allows the cutting of mangroves and artificial fillers on floodplain that jeopardize the city and threaten human, legal, ecological and economic security.
