The bridge over the Zapata cañal in Seis Amigos, can easily be called the “narco” bridge since the structure that was completed in July and inaugurated in September, serves only to access the Reventazon river, five houses and the farm where authorities discovered the “narco” helipads and canals to the Caribbean coast.
The bridge that spans 15 metres (45 feet) was financed with funds of the Comisión Nacional de Emergencias (CNE) – national emergency commission – through a public tender in 2012.
In the two days of September 20 and 21, the government inaugurated four bridges in the province of Limón, including the Seis Amigos. Taking part in the inauguration ceremony were Costa Rica’s vice-president, Alfio Piva; CNE president, Vanessa Rosales; and Siquirres municipal councillor, Krysbell Rios; among other public officials.
As we learned earlier this week, the 600 acre farm property usd by the Narco, is owned by Inversiones A y B Peraza Rios del Caribe, that according to the Registro Nacional (national propert registry), is owned by Gevanny Peraza Castillo and his wife, Krysell Ríos.
Public record indicates that the building of the bridge was at the request of Ríos on behalf of the municipal council.
