Government Commission begins the analysis of Bill 739 that establishes the criminological policy in Panama

The deputies that make up the Government Commission of the National Assembly, began this Monday morning, the analysis of Bill 739 that establishes the criminological policy in the Republic of Panama.

This bill was presented to the Assembly by the Minister of Security, Juan Pino, in December of last year and last week it went to the first debate.

If approved as a law of the Republic, this will force the governments of the day to see the criminological issue from an integral and more complete context, understanding it as a state issue and not just as a ministry issue.

The bill also contemplates the creation of the National Criminological Policy Council, which would be chaired by the head of Security and would have an Executive Secretariat in charge of coordinating with representatives of various instances, which would be part of said council.

The secretary general of the Ministry of Public Security (Minseg), Jonathan Riggs, indicated that this seeks to consolidate the proposal, understanding that the criminal dynamic forces us to strengthen programs, strategies and projects that favor prevention.

“This criminological policy project seeks to address the phenomenon of antisocial behavior from the root, prevent children and adolescents from making crime their way of life, strengthen the effective articulation of institutions that seek to develop prevention programs,” he said.

Inter-institutional coordination also has among its specific objectives, to guarantee intervention mechanisms for crime prevention, rehabilitation and reintegration of citizens who have made criminal activity their way of life.
