One of the subjects is Juan Carlos Graham Forbes, who had no identification documents when he was approached by units from the SENAFRONT in Paso Canoas, 500 kilometers to the west of the city, and the other subject’s name is Denis Joseph Sandoval, according to a statement from the police.
They were both travelling by bus as tourists from Nicaragua without complying with the legal requirements for entering the country (economic solvency, two way ticket), and the immigration stamps “were illegally obtained,” according to SENAFRONT.
The statement details that Zoraida Martinez, Nicaraguan, is under investigation after she said an official from immigration was helping her with the transaction of her exit stamp, violating the immigration requirements.
Also, 12 out of the 37 passengers in a bus coming from Costa Rica were sent back to the border in Paso Canoas after the authorities discovered they were not in the excursion list. Their nationalities are still unknown.
This case was passed on to the competent authorities for its due investigation, according to the information. (Panama America)
