The lawyer for the two-time former president assured that is was they who requested the inspection of the home in Rohrmoser by the prosecutor's office and the OIJ and in the presence of lawyers of the accusers

In a rather unusual legal maneuver, former president Oscar Arias requested that a prosecutor and agents of the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) inspect his home, in Rohrmoser, Pavas, in relation to allegations of sexual abuse.

The inspection, in which the lawyers of the complainants were also present, took place this Tuesday morning.

In speaking to the press, Arias’s lawyer Erick Ramos assured that they were the ones who requested the inspection and not the other way around.

Arias faces two court cases; one for the alleged rape of a doctor named Arce, to events that occurred in December 2014 in the former president’s home, and second for sexual abuse of Yazmín Morales, in relation to events that occurred in 2015.

These are the only formal complaints (denuncias) against the former two-time president of Costa Rica.

However, there are seven other allegations of sexual abuse by women who have chosen not to file a denuncia against the former president.
