Panama

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 02:02:41 +0000

Crime
Violent crime in Panama, including armed robbery and mugging, is not common but does occur.  There have also been reports of “express kidnappings”, where individuals are forced to withdraw funds from automatic teller machines (ATMs) to secure their release. To reduce the risk of this occurring we recommend you use ATMs located inside banks during daylight hours.

Crime
Distraction thefts and violent crime are an issue in Argentina.  Petty crime, such as pick-pocketing and bag-snatching, is common, especially in popular tourist and public areas.  New Zealanders in Argentina should be vigilant about personal security and avoid walking alone at night.  New Zealanders in Buenos Aires should be particularly cautious in Retiro, La Boca and San Telmo, where robberies are common.

Political Situation
In May 2009, 26 years of military conflict between the Sri Lankan Government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) ended.  In 2011, the State of Emergency and Emergency regulations were lifted but heightened security measures remain in place in parts of Sri Lanka.  These could include checkpoints along roads and a visible security presence in some areas.  New Zealanders in Sri Lanka should follow any instructions and restrictions issued by the local authorities.

Terrorism
International and domestic terrorist groups have conducted attacks in Turkey. In recent years, attacks have occurred in tourist areas and locations frequented by foreigners resulting in deaths and injuries.
