Boat theft, Las Brisas, Amador, Panama

Illegal Business in Brisas de Amador.

A foreign national (known as "Juan") has assumed authority over State assets and operates a illegal mooring business in plain view of the Panamanian authorities in Brisas de Amador. Juan's illegal activities and his outright theft of foreign vessels will leave a permanent stain on Panama's international reputation

Maritime businesses in Panama, must obtain permission from the AMP. The use of the ocean bottom requires a concession and the payment concession fees. All businesses in Panama are required to pay taxes to Economy and Finances. So why is Juan permitted to operate an illegal business, in full view of the port officials, without a concession, without permission, and without paying any fees or taxes?

It is a well know fact that Juan's illegal business is acting with Government Powers: seizing vessels and selling stolen property. Although he has no legal authority or Court order, he is openly supported by the local port authorities. As such, Juan's illegal operation appears to be sanctioned by the Panamanian Government.

I'm a victim. My boat was stolen and I'd be interested in hearing from others.
