According to Jaime Sibaja, head of the press office of the Ministry of Public Security (MSP), it was due to an error by Costa Rican officials who did not notice that they crossed the border line by few meters on a motorcycle and were detained by the Nicaraguan army.

“All afternoon talks were held through the diplomatic channel until they were returned to Costa Rican soil and they are in excellent health,” said Daniel Calderón, director-general of the Fuerza Publica (national police).
