Police security detail assigned to candidate Villalta following death threats

February 2, 2014

The daily La Nación reported today that a special police security detail was assigned to Broad Front Party presidential candidate José María Villalta last Thursday after the candidate received death threats.

Little was made public about the nature or the source of the threats, but La Nación said agents from Costa Rica’s Judicial Investigation Police interviewed Villalta at length last Thursday in the center of Escazú.

“It’s a very delicate issue,” Villalta told the daily on Saturday during a tour of Alajuelita.
