Dear Interconexcion CP,
I serve as a legal and development advisor to the Wargandi Comarca through the nonprofit that I founded and direct, Village Rights International. I have deep ties with these communities.
I have been tracking the negotiations of the Government of Panama with the Wargandi General Congress. I am concerned that due to the relative lack of education and weak lines of communication in the Wargandi Comarca, that there may significant lack of communication going on.
Panamanian law and international law require that the communities be consulted on this project, and that they give their approval in writing before any significant steps are taken.
I would like to speak with somebody about these issues as soon as possible.
