Panamanian teens grounded…permanently

The new government has reinstated the 9 pm nationwide curfew for all minors not accompanied by a responsible adult. Not sure what the reaction to such a law would be in Costa Rica or the UK but most people here seem to approve of the measure.

The government does not take a dim view of all young people, however. The 21-year old daughter of a minister was appointed consul in Canada. The list of appointees to diplomatic posts has raised a lot of eyebrows. Like his predecessors, the President is using his powers of patronage to hand out these plum jobs in return for political support.
