PANAMA CITY.- The program at first can be seen as a populist program to obtain the grace of the sectors least favored of Panama, now it reveals some weaknesses. Before the ignorance and the economic need, the attempt of renting the house donated by the government by a family unleashed the critiques
A post ignited the polemic on the use that there should have the houses donated by the government of Juan Carlos Varela of the program called "Techos de Esperanza".
The advertisement shows a housing in El Cocal plantation of Las Tablas, which family owners had published in the OLX web site.
César Castillo, owner of the N ° 13 house of Techos de Esperanza in Los Santos, admitted that the post was a mistake but it reveals something more: they had post it to collect money for a medical treatment for his daughter.
The offer was offering the rent of the house of Techos de Esperanza for four days of Carnival for a cost of 450 USD.
The Department of Housing and Territorial Classification of Panama, asked to remove the advertisement and issued a communiqué in which they repeated to more than 8 thousand families benefited with the program " that the houses " cannot be sold , rented or traspassed", after the scandal that was arising with this family.
The Miviot expressed across a communiqué that this has been "an isolated case and by no means it is a general trend".
The value of the houses of Techos de Esperanza is estimated in 17 thousand 500 dollars and precisely for the adjudication of housings also payments were denounced to have priority in the delivery of these benefits. On this, the MIVIOT also rejected the supposed collections to receive the housings.
