A Human Right not to be tortured:

Updated: Nov 3, 2019

We at Panama Human Rights have seen first hand that torture runs deep in Panama and is accepted as a part of normal everyday life, without sites like ours this practice will continue.

The indigenous communities in Panama use a practice called a CEPO which is still used to this day, for anyone who steals a chicken or breaks the Indian code of conduct can expect to receive served punishment with the blessing of the state because the government does not want to get involved with indigenous tribal Indians.

Brutality is systemic in Panama from government officials down to Indian camps, Panamanian people are like Teflon and seem to enjoy this barbaric practice. In the video below it even draws an audience videoing the torture without any thought or compassion for the individual.
