Amnesty International has condemned the Panamanian authorities' decision to forcibly return between 18 and 20 April more than 300 Colombian refugees, mainly women and some 177 children, after they had fled to Panama to escape the violence in their home region. Representatives of neither the UNHCR not the ICRC were allowed to see the refugees before their removal.
