Supreme Court Judge Harry Díaz has requested that Chief Justice José Ayú Prado put limits on foreign trips by judges to ensure that members can attend plenary meetings.

The suggestion of Díaz was communicated to Ayú Prado in a note sent Thursday "in response to strong criticism by the public about the amount and excessive cost of trips made by judges."

Díaz suggested that travel should be authorized by the plenary of the court, and not by the chief justice or the fourth chamber, which is the current method.

Judges made 92 foreign trips from 2012 to June 2015 that cost $234,815.

Judges also made 74 trips within Panama during this period that cost $9,769.

The judges that made the most trips were Ayú Prado (23), Luis Ramón Fábrega (17) and Hernan De Leon and Abel Zamorano, with 16 each.

Harley Mitchell, whose term expired Dec. 31, was the only judge not to have made a trip in that period.

The Alianza Ciudadana Pro Justicia has requested an audit be conducted of these trips.

Wednesday, Credentials Committee Chairman Jorge Iván Arrocha told the group that the application must name the court's nine judges to be accepted.
