QCOSTARICA – The Costa Rican ambassador to South Korea was fired Friday for a Facebook posting expressing a negative opinion of Procuradora Ana Lorena Brenes as the controversy swirling around the scandal in which she alleged that ex-Deputy Minister of the Presidency Daniel Soley pressured Brenes to step down from her position.

The ambassador, Roberto Zamora, was fired by Foreign Minister Manuel Gonzalez who said that an official representing the country in a post abroad should not criticize a person in a top position in government. Brenes is attorney for the government and also is empowered to advise on legal issues.

Minister Gonzalez said that it did not matter that no proof exists that Zamora’s Facebook account was not hacked and the opinion express there not his own, as long as a doubt exists. At the time of this writing, Zamora had no comment because he had yet to be notified.

Beginning Wednesday, the Foreign Minister began the investigation of the post which remained up until Thursday. The firing comes a week after Costa Rican ambassador to Bolivia Patricia Gomez also opined about the scandal on Facebook and was fired three days later by President Luis Guillermo Solis.

Zamora is the third official to fall, following the resignation of Soley and the firing of Gomez.
