Seven people responsible for the“Church of God” killings in the El Terrón community in the Ngäbe Buglé region in January 2020 were sentenced to 50 years in prison, related to torture carried out by the religious sect.

The crimes for which they were sentenced are homicide, femicide, and deprivation of liberty, to the detriment of 7 people.

Prosecutors managed to support the theory of the case of the Public Ministry before a court of conscience that, on Saturday, November 20, 2021, after six days of oral trial, issued a unanimous judgment with a condemnatory sense.

 According to the investigation of the Public Ministry, the people who were sentenced participated in a religious cult where they murdered the victims with blows inflicted with machetes, Bibles, and sticks.

During the final argument, the prosecutor Rodríguez indicated that they were victims, mostly minors who died cruelly at the hands of these people who, abrogating an act in the name of God, committed the crimes.
