Complaints Filed Over Corruption At The University of Panama

CorruptionA complaint has been filed that there are professors at the University of Panama who get paid, but don't teach. They professors are receiving paychecks but they are not giving classes. There are facilities in disrepair, and charges of persecution were some of the remarks made by student leader Carlos Bichet who, after classes resumed on Wednesday, held an assembly at the Faculty of Law at the University of Panama. Bichet announced that students will conduct protests and hunger strikes, and added that on Wednesday afternoon they would go to the Ascanio Arosemena monument on the Avenida de los Martires to take an oath on the coming fight. The leader also alleged that senior officers of the University of Panama bought luxury cars while the facilities of the UP "are falling down." (Telemetro)

Editor's Comment: In the past, the Rector of the University of Panama would basically protect these "student leaders" who are really just left-wing extremists. But now there's an audit coming which will expose the corruption of the leadership at the University. In order to gain some bargaining ground, they are starting to toss these "student leaders" under the bus, kick them out of school, send their cases to the Public Ministry, etc. The student leaders know exactly what's going on, so now they too are starting to make public denouncements and complaints against the leadership of the University of Panama, alleging corruption and the mishandling of funds. Remember, the University of Panama is a part of the government of Panama, sort of. Anyway, now the leadership finds themselves perched squarely upon the twin horns of a dilemma. Screwed if they do, screwed if they don't. I see this as the start of another deconstruction effort by Ricardo Martinelli, to tear down the walls of manifest and entrenched corruption that has plagued the University of Panama for decades. It's been a very long time coming, indeed. These are exactly the kinds of issues and complaints the Rector of the University of Panama, Gustavo Garcia de Paredes, knows will be exposed in the coming audit. The audit was supposed to start today, but he postponed it supposedly for "security" reasons.
