Arthur Porter trades medical advice for 'makeshift bed' and 'a little bit of privacy'...


Makes you wonder why he chooses to live in such circumstances instead of returning to Canada to answer charges...

Like the other inmates who fight for survival inside Pavilion Six, the crowded, disease-ridden building reserved for foreigners at Panamaís notorious La Joya prison, Arthur Porter scrounges for food and fends off rats. But thatís about all he has in common with the local population, mainly drug traffickers and the odd killer. La Joya prison in Panama, where Canada's former spy watchdog Arthur Porter, now wanted on various charges in Canada, is being held.

Canadaís former spy review committee chairman and member of the Queenís Privy Council sticks out like a sore thumb. The rest are lost causes, men without options or second chances. They wonder what Dr. Porter is doing inside La Joya. They canít understand why he has chosen to remain there, eating spoiled rice and beans, drinking dirty water, dealing with corrupt guards. They look at Dr. Porter in wonder, because unlike themselves, he could choose to leave.
