Panamanian Abducted in LA by Police, Missing

by Floyd Britton Friday, Feb. 18, 2005 at 6:35 AM

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 Jimnez Clement, a Panamanian citizen residing in Los Angeles, California and owner of the Internet website www.quiubo.net. Hes the son of La Prensa cartoonist Alfredo Wilfi Jimnez. On January 7 police showed up at the younger Jimnezs 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 Jimnez 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 Jimnez 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. Panamas Ministry of Foreign Relations says that it is making inquiries of the US government on the Jimnez familys behalf.

belongs in local section

by me Friday, Feb. 18, 2005 at 9:51 PM

this is obviously a local story. why isnt it in the local section? also, we should do some investigative work on this. the original article comes from www.thepanamanews.com
but with some letters to some congress representatives, or the mayor or someone, perhaps we could find some info on where he has been taken...

Pesadilla de hermanos
Rafael Candanedo
Tiempos del Mundo

CIUDAD DE PANAM. Luis Jimnez Clement fue acusado de intento de secuestro y est detenido en el condado californiano de Corona. Ex fotgrafo de prensa de 30 aos, Luis es un ingeniero informtico que emigr hace siete aos de su natal Panam a Estados Unidos.

En una operacin cinematogrfica, con ms de veinte vehculos bomberiles, de la Polica de Los ngeles y del FBI, Jimnez fue apresado el 7 de enero en su domicilio en Corona, en el que se encontraba su ta Nelva Simons y la recin nacida hija de un vecino estadounidense.

Una denunciante annima lo acusa de haber intentado secuestrarla. Familiares consultados calculan que se trata de un asunto de discriminacin por los rasgos rabes del ingeniero.

En medio del tropel, Aurelio Jimnez telefone a la residencia allanada para salir en defensa de su hermano Luis, ante lo cual un grupo de agentes policiales se dirigi hacia la academia de aviacin de Mojave, en California, donde revalida su licencia de piloto. No fue detenido por la intervencin de las propias autoridades del centro de entrenamiento.

Uno de los agentes del FBI informalmente le dijo que esa agencia posea informacin de que ira a cometer un acto terrorista y que estrellara un avin, en alusin a los atentados del 11 de septiembre de 2001, informaron en Panam familiares de los hermanos. Luis y Aurelio son hijos del periodista, radiocomentarista y caricaturista Wilfi Jimnez. Las caricaturas de Jimnez se publican en el influyente diario La Prensa. Los hermanos emigraron a Estados Unidos en busca de mejores oportunidades de empleo.

La Cancillera panamea ha instruido a su Consulado en Los ngeles a que preste apoyo legal a Luis Jimnez, y que, de ser posible, una vez se celebre prximamente la audiencia, tramite su eventual repatriacin.

Computadoras y otras pertenencias del ingeniero fueron confiscadas por las autoridades estadounidenses.
