A 21-year-old man was provisionally arrested for the crime for the alleged commission of the crime against life and personal integrity, in the form of aggravated intentional homicide in attempted degree.
In a guarantee control hearing, the guarantee judge of the First Judicial Circuit of Panama, Teodolinda Cardoze, decreed the personal precautionary measure of provisional detention.
This Friday, September 16, the judge stated that the personal precautionary measure imposed was necessary and proportional to the nature of the event; coupled with procedural risks such as flight risk, danger of affecting evidence, danger to the community due to the nature of the event and danger to the victims.
Previously, the arrest was legalized and the formulation of the imputation of the charges by the Public Ministry, which was represented by the prosecutor Miguel Vega, was considered as presented. The accused was represented by attorney Oscar Trejos, while the victim was represented by attorney Shantal Acevedo.
Before concluding the hearing, an appeal against the precautionary measure was announced, which was scheduled for next September 22, at 2:00 pm, in the facilities of the Accusatory Penal System located in Plaza Fortuna.
This incident occurred on August 27 in the Pueblo Nuevo district, when a citizen was injured after an exchange of fire.
