By Dialogo October 28, 2011 Panamanian and Costa Rican authorities met on October 26 in search of strategies for the fight against organized crime operating on the two countries’ shared border, a Costa Rican source announced. “Crime problems are common to our two countries, so that meetings of this kind serve to strengthen our ties of cooperation at all levels,” Costa Rican Deputy Public Safety Minister Celso Gamboa declared. “We support close cooperation between Panama and Costa Rica through the handling and exchange of information,” his Panamanian counterpart Alejandro Garuz said in a statement, for his part. According to Garuz, despite the efforts made, technological advances, communications, and investments, “it’s necessary to confront the various conditions under which transnational terrorism is abusing the Costa Rican-Panamanian border.” The authorities discussed drug trafficking, human trafficking, prostitution, smuggling, drugs, and tax evasion, among other topics. Panama “is a fundamental strategic ally in the fight against crime, and we want to improve relations in order to succeed in making an effective impact,” Gamboa said, adding that in his country “there are concerns” about the penetration of drug trafficking on the border at Paso Canoas. The meeting in the Panamanian city of David concluded on October 27.
