True that man, he is just toying the system like always, but unfortunately the law system in Panama has big holes where corruption can hide and do as they please.

Hypertension (otherwise known as high blood pressure) can be controlled with a few daily pills. There is no need for a hospital visit. This guy is going to continue milking the system until he is told "NO".
