Director Idalia Martinez made the announcement through her Twitter account. According to the official, that delivery will be at 11 a.m.
The La Chorrera Youth Family Court had ordered the Senniaf to return the child, but the order had not been executed until today.
The announcement came amidst an exchange of messages with Panameñista Deputy José Luis Varela, who had publicly appealed for the decision to be followed.
Meanwhile, surrogate family members last night held a vigil opposite the headquarters of the Senniaf, in Bella Vista, to demand the court order be followed.
In a press release, the National Support Network for Children and Adolescents also urged the court order to be followed, saying the removal of the child from the foster home was improper since the youth had been with the family for four years.
The network said we "do not understand why this process was abruptly interrupted and it did not take into account the well-being, self-esteem and emotional stability of the child."
"We see how the days pass and stretch without resolution which is undoubtedly a clear distraction that puts in serious doubt the seriousness with which some authorities take their administrative roles," said the organization.
The Ministry of Social Development will begin investigating the matter.
