A report by Telenoticias says that the controversial aircraft that caused the political crisis in the government, has been on the radar of authorities since 2011.
The television news says it has documents in its possession that the aircraft with the call letters N93CW, had since 2011 an order to notify authorities of all who boarded the jet, was well as the comings and goings of the aircraft.
This means that suspicions about the airplane and its occupants is not new.
And that is why it is difficult to understand the “surprise” of the presidential security forces and the reaction to alleged ties to drug traffickers and the relationship to Colombian Grabriel Morales.
Sources close to Telenoticias, who would not identify themselves, state that there was a time that Morales had everything to do with the plane, from its maintenance to its operation.
In an interview with Colombia’s RCN News, Morales admits to in 2007 founding the company that owns or leases the plane, but today has not relation with the company, only works as a consultant for it and other multinationals.
Although Morales and former Costa Rican soccer player, Rolando Fonseca and some 29 companies linked to the two, may not have broken the law, the Dirección de Tributación Directa (Costa Rica’s tax man) confirms having initiated an investigation into the tax status of those involved.
