TEXT OF COMMITTEE REPORTED RESOLUTION OF ADVICE AND CONSENT TO RATIFICATION AS AS REPORTED BY THE COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS AND AGREED TO BY THE SENATE:
@Resolved, (two-thirds of the Senators present concurring therein), That the Senate advise and consent to the ratification of the Treaty between the United States of America and the Republic of Panama on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters, With Annexes and Appendices, signed at Panama on April 11, 1991.

Pursuant to the rights of the United States under this Treaty to deny requests which prejudice its essential public policy or interest, the United States shall deny a request for assistance when the Central Authority, after consultation with all appropriate intelligence, anti-narcotic, and foreign policy agencies, has specific information that a senior government official who will have access to information to be provided under this Treaty is engaged in or facilitates the production or distribution of illegal drugs.
