The legislator’s criticism follows President Alvarado telling officials of the Judiciary, who are investigating him for the case of the Presidential Data Analysis Unit (UPAD), he does not remember the passwords of his electronic devices.

“I am concerned about the mental state of a president who forgets his phone numbers in such a short time, it is a danger for Costa Rica. A person with such forgetfulness becomes a risk for the country. If he really suffers from those memory lapses, he puts at stake nothing less than the course of the nation he commands and the destiny of thousands of Costa Ricans,” said Chan.
