COSTA RICA NEWS — Francisco Segura, the director of the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ), admits that situations like the spying of Keylor Navas has been repeated in other cases and that he would like to remove a “lot of undesirables” from within the judicial police force.

The director says it isn’t within his power to clean up the system as he would like, while making public the alleged abuse of OIJ agents and prosecutors accessing the Police Information System to obtain information on Keylor Navas.

“Nobody has the right to ‘vinear’ (a Spanish word for ‘snoop’) on the life of people without justification,” says Segura.

Segura says that the Navas incident is not the first, it has happened at other times with other people, however, the law does not allow for the firing of the official, only to submit a report to the Judicial Inspectorate (Inspección Judicial in Spanish), to determine sanctions, which could range from a reprimand to dismissal.

The director added that all he can do is send the officials home for 15 days.

Segura says they have identified 24 people who logged in to the system to obtain information on the national team’s star football (soccer) player.

At the Fiscalía (Attorney General), the press office informs that the Attorney General, Jorgé Chavarria and Segura, have been called in by the Supreme Court to provide an account of what occurred.

Chief Justice Zarela Villanueva has been quoted as saying “this is very serious and totally unacceptable”.
