Panamanian American arrested in LA on January 7.
US holding alleged Panamanian terrorist
Using the word “terrorist” to describe a person arrested and held incommunicado by the US government pursuant to the Patriot Act or other Bush administration policies would in most cases be unfair --- the great majority of such persons seized have not been shown to be in any way connected with terrorist activities. Nevertheless, detentions in which non-US citizens are held incommunicado from their families and without access to lawyers continue. One of the thousands of “terrorist” detainees is Luis Antonio Jiménez Clement, a Panamanian citizen residing in Los Angeles, California and owner of the Internet website www.quiubo.net. He’s the son of La Prensa cartoonist Alfredo “Wilfi” Jiménez. On January 7 police showed up at the younger Jiménez’s home in LA, saying that they wanted to talk to him about a kidnapping case. Later a large force from the FBI and several other agencies descended on the home and took Luis Antonio Jiménez prisoner on unspecified suspicions of terrorism. According to La Prensa, the FBI cited things published by the website and letters to the Washington Post and The New York times criticizing George W. Bush to support the allegation --- which has apparently not been made in any court --- that Jiménez is a terrorist. The website has been shut down in the wake of the arrest and nothing sent to either of the newspapers mentioned has been produced. Panama’s Ministry of Foreign Relations says that it is making inquiries of the US government on the Jiménez family’s behalf.
