Costa Rica turns the screws still more on bureaucrats

The "conventions" are the benefits or "perks" enjoyed by public servants who work in state-owned banks, municipalities, universities and autonomous institutions. The possibility of the imposition of a blanket ban on the perks has been mooted in recent weeks in the country, La República reports in Spanish.
