President Juan Carlos Varela announced Monday that Alexis Bethancourt has been appointed deputy minister of Public Security.

He will also be the acting minister until that position is filled.

Bethancourt replaces Rodolfo Aguilera, who was minister, and Rogelio Donadío, who served as deputy minister.

Varela said that Bethancourt has "many abilities on security issues."

Bethancourt, who was director of the Financial Analysis Unit, has more than 25 years of experience in the area of security, and in the last two years worked with the ministries of the Presidency and Economy and Finance.

The president said he will announce a new director of the unit in the near future.

Varela lauded the efforts of the official to have Panama removed from the Financial Action Task Force grey list.

Aguilera and Donadío resigned May 5.

Donadio is facing a criminal investigation for his handling of an inquiry into accounting irregularities. He allegedly handcuffed a person he suspected of irregularities to a chair and questioned him, a violation of the criminal procedure code.
