Costa Rica Wants Nicaragua to Investigate Suspected Payoff of Nicaraguans Paying Off Soldiers To Cross Illegally Into The Country

COSTA RICA NEWS (EFE) – Costa Rica is calling on Nicaragua to investigate allegations of Nicaraguans paying off soldiers to cross illegally into Costa Rica, this following a report by Costa Rica’s television network Repretel that showed images of a suspected payoff being made by Nicaraguan immigrants to soldiers.

The letter reads: “given the seriousness of the charge that Nicaraguan public officials take money in exchange for permitting illegal, dangerous immigration into Costa Rican territory, my government calls Nicaragua’s attention to this situation so that these incidents will be investigated.”

“Upon proving that, in effect, such conduct did take place, Costa Rica hopes that Nicaragua will act according to its laws, and take the necessary measures to avoid facilitating illegal migrant traffic into Costa Rica. By the same token, if such traffic has been facilitated by Nicaraguan officials, let this conduct be punished to the full extent of the law,” the message said.

Minister Gonzalez also said in the letter that Costa Rica “is a caring country that has welcomed thousands of people who have found opportunities and hope…for which reason it regrets that unscrupulous people try to make money with the illegal activity of international migrant trafficking.
