Prosecutor’s Office raids National Emergency Commission a second time
Officials from the Prosecutor’s Office and agents from the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) on Tuesday raided for a second time this month the offices of the National Emergency Commission (CNE) in San José, as part of investigations related to the construction of a road parallel to Nicaragua’s border.
Agents confiscated information relating to payments made for the construction of the 160-kilometer Route 1856 along Río San Juan, OIJ sources said.
Funds for the construction of the road came from the CNE, due to a direct emergency order issued by the President Laura Chinchilla.
On June 6, 30 judges and 150 OIJ officers raided 36 different locations as part of an investigation into irregularities involving contracting and alleged payments of bribes in the process of building the road.
