The Director of Immigration, Javier Carrillo, expressed his concern about the issue because these people arrived at the country with no passport and they are not certain about what their names are.
Carrillo admitted they do not know what to do with these undocumented immigrants, because Panama does not have embassies or consulates in Somalia and Bangladesh, so there is no way to issue safe-conduct passes for them.
Despite the efforts, the Panamanian authorities fail to prevent human trafficking. In the case of extra-continental foreigners (Somalia, Bangladesh, among other countries) arrive in Colombia and from there they illegally enter Panama. (TVN)
