Mata stressed that as Nicaragua does not extradite its nationals, “Costa Rica will do everything to have him tried there”.

The minister explained the arrest occurred around 5:00pm Friday, informed by Costa Rica’s Ambassador in Nicaragua, Javier Sancho.

In Costa Rica, Nicaragua’s Ambassador, Harold Rivas, explained that part of his country’s Prosecutor’s office (Fiscalia) will be in touch with their counterparts in Costa Rica, to request evidence against the suspect.

“In such cases, the process will move quickly. I will know more details later,” said Rivas.

The director of the OIJ, Wálter Espinoza, said they have already forwarded their files in the case to the Ministerio Publico (Prosecutor’s Office), for them to review and act as they see fit. Espinoza added that their investigation of the case is continuing.
