Panamá extradition treaty approved by lawmakers

Lawmakers have approved for the second and final time an extradition treaty with Panamá. One of the aspects is that Costa Ricans or Panamanians serving time in the other country can finish their sentence in their homeland.

Lawmakers spoke of organized crime and other problems in the border region that crossed national borders.

None of the 45 lawmakers present voted against the measure.
