Are our ambulances secure?

The thought of being a victim in an ambulance and being robbed is very scary. Further investigation may show a connection with either the driver, the dispatcher or the attendant - it seems unlikely that bandits waited on the side of the highway for an ambulance to randomly drive by so they could rob it - most crimes in Panama have an inside connection.



 In the Rose and Peter criminal trials - the extortion cases were reported incorrectly - it is the Ernest and Arlene Nash criminal fraud case that is going to trial. The extortion case with Diane Maxwell is being investigated in La Chorrea. We apologize for any misconceptions this may have caused.
