Costa Rica Labor minister resigns
Wednesday, March 16, 2016
Costa Rica’s Labor Minister Víctor Morales resigned amid growing criticism over the hiring of his niece for a job at the ministry, a violation of a code of ethics that he helped promote.
“I’m leaving in order to protect a clean record,” Morales said, acknowledging that Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solís was not satisfied with the removal of Morales’ niece, Yulianna Alfaro Morales, from a job as receptionist at the ministry, which she started last week.
