Panama’s new cabinet

I read in this morning’s paper that most of the ministers appointed by the incoming President are career politicians who served in previous administrations. Nothing new there, then.

The man chosen to head the “get-tough-on-crime” campaign as Chief of Police is a former Noriega sidekick (a “key player in the regime,” according to the paper). He was arrested following the invasion on suspicion of having murdered an American civilian but was subsequently released for lack of evidence. He previously had accompanied Noriega’s daughters on a visit to Libya for meetings with Gaddafi, where he also met Saddam Hussein.
