However, the monetary fine of ¢107,000 colones plus costs will continue. Originally the plan proposed to reduce the fine to ¢ 23,000, finally, a political agreement between the legislative benches maintained the pecuniary sanction.

The agreement also established that the fines collected go to the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) – the Costa Rican Social Security Fund.
