Omar Torrijos (with Jaime Roldós Aguilera) is named by John Perkins as someone who resisted the threats and bribes of the IMF and the World Bank and insisted on doing what would benefit the citizens of his country, Panama, and who was assassinated by CIA 'jackals' as a result.[1]

He is named by the Encylopaedia Britannica as a "dictator-like leader".[2]
