Questioned court to decide financial future of Costa Rica

Monday, November 12, 2018


Costa Rica's Supreme Court is to decide on the legal implications of the new taxes proposed by President Carlos Alvarado that will decide the economic future of the nation. But the very same court is being questioned by a crisis that questions its image.

Today an opinion poll by the University of Costa Rica recounts accusations of corruption, unauroized perks and exorbitant pensions.

The dismissal of a judge found to have been trafficking in influences, an investigation lodged against its chief prosecutor, and the pensions are only some of the charges being lodged against the judiciary.
