The Second Criminal Liquidator Court of the First Judicial Circuit of Panama opened a criminal case against 14 citizens for irregularities in the purchase of bags of food through the defunct National Aid Program (PAN).

In addition, it ordered the dismissal of one person and the lifting of the precautionary measures that had been imposed on him.

The date of the Ordinary Hearing was set for April 11, 12 and 13, 2022, and an alternate date of May 25, 26 and 27, 2022. Three public defenders were appointed.

This case arose after complaints of cost overruns in the purchase of food through the PAN during the years 2012-2014, for which an investigation was initiated for the alleged commission of crimes against the public administration, in different forms of embezzlement.
