According to the Penal Code of the Republic of Panama, an individual sentenced to imprisonment who has completed two-thirds of their sentence with indicators of rehabilitation, good conduct, and compliance with prison regulations may be eligible for parole.

Parole will be granted by the Executive Branch through a resolution and will entail the following obligations for the beneficiary:

  • Reside at the designated location and not change residence without prior authorization.
  • Adhere to the surveillance rules established in the resolution.
  • Adopt a lawful means of subsistence.
  • Refrain from committing a new offense or serious violation.
  • Submit to the observation of the entity designated by the Executive Branch.

These obligations will remain in effect until the completion of the sentence from the day the sentenced individual obtained parole.
