QCOSTARICA – Making the visitors list to Casa Presidencial (Government House) is “highly prejudicial to the public interest and national security”, says the government’s legal director, Marvin Carvajal, in denying a request by Partido Liberación Nacional (PLN) legislator, Rolando González.

Carvajal, in his reply to the legislator’s “recurso amparo” (appeal to the Constitutional Court or Sala IV), said the information contains the names of foreign security agents and reports of investigations by the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) – the nation’s intelligence service.

According to Carvajal, the list of visitors to Casa Presidencial includes names of informants in cases of drug trafficking and terrorism and revealing this information could endanger these people and put a risk the nation’s security.

The legislator made his request on January 19, asking for copies of logs and records containing names, identification numbers and origin of all entering Casa Presidencial, filing a complaint with the Constitutional Court on February 11, after the government’s denial of his request.
