Costa Rican legislators seek dismissal of minister

Thursday, April 11, 2013

A Costa Rican Legislative Assembly commission investigating alleged corruption in the construction of a border road parallel to the Nicaragua border on Wednesday called for the dismissal of former foreign minister and current Environment Minister René Castro, along with the president of the National Emergency Commission, Vanessa Rosales.

Lawmakers Manrique Oviedo and Patricia Pérez from the Citizen Action Party and Libertarian Movement Party, respectively, presented a final report that also requests the removal of National Drug Commissioner Mauricio Boraschi, who "made false statements in a letter addressed to the presidency minister that prompted the start of the project."

The report seeks a “moral sanction” against Vice President Luis Liberman, who it says was the top executive branch official in charge of the project.
