Judicial Police raid six more companies linked to border road contracts

December 10, 2012

Judicial Police officers on Monday raided six companies involved in the construction of Route 1856, a road parallel to the San Juan River on the border with Nicaragua.

Four of the raids were conducted in the canton of San Carlos, in the province of Alajuela, one in Curridabat (east San José) and one in Sarapiquí (in Heredia).

The raided companies are: Movimientos de Tierra y Acarreos ALFRITZ S.A., Constructora Basavi S.A., Compañía Constructora MONRO S.A., WSP Constructora S.A. and Construtana R&A S.A.

The companies were hired to work on the border road, but had not been previously investigated “because no prior payments had been made to them,” police sources said.

However, the companies had irregular unpaid bills issued to the National Roadway Council.

On June 6, Judicial Police raided 36 companies as part of the same investigation.
