Inside Job: Court Employee Tracks Investigation

Thursday 01 November 2012 | QNews Costa Rica

Judicial police found in 2010 that an employee at the Alajuela Criminal Court was allegedly informing a “friend” of the status of an investigation for his alleged involvement with a car theft ring known as Los Gallos.

But it has taken two years to reach a point of her dismissal, although she appears to have been transfered to a less sensitive section of the court, according to a report in the national newspaper La Nacion.

Last Oct. 2, a court panel agreed to fire her, but now the Ministry of Labor is reviewing her case before the last connection with her job is severed. In delicate words, the internal court tribunal found she “does not merit the confidence placed in her.”

Judicial police, intercepting the phone of the car theft suspect, named Leiton,” logged 16 daily calls in which the woman, named Leon, kept the suspect up to the minute with reports about the probe into his activities.

The tribunal called her private life “incorrect” in that she “maintained connections with a person of doubtful reputation.” In fact, they say she went so far as to intercede with a prosecutor to try to convince him to return a car the detectives had confiscated from Leiton

Leon had been employed by the court for 16 years, which may account for the reluctance to present charges immediately. Court investigators said Leon provided Leiton “confidential data regarding the investigation.”

This forced investigators into the car theft ring to “implement a series of measures to protect the investigation.” But Leon threw a monkey wrench into the works by appealing to the Labor Ministry.

The Labor Relations Commission recommends that the case be shelved, claiming that she was pregnant and that the labor statutes prohibit her dismissal from work.os Gallos.
