Wasting no time, the full body of the National Assembly approved Bill 529 in the third and final debate, which allows for the government to sell the lands of the Colon Free Trade Zone. There were 41 votes in favor and 4 against to approve the controversial project, which is causing protests in the province of Colon. Sergio Galvez, the President of the National Assembly, signed the instrument of approval. Now it just needs the sanction of President Ricardo Martinelli. (Telemetro)
