The man, identified by his last name Sotela, is being investigated for allegedly having a link to a 16 year-old  and using confidential police information to consult records of alleged customers of little girls, to extort them.

Authorities presume Sotela received financial remuneration from the ring that operated in the Hatillos, Pavas and San José centre.

Sources close to the investigation said that the minor, a student at one of the schools, received money to recruit minors and introduce them to adult ment, even foreigners, who were given the option of girls to choose from.

The pedophiles were later to become victims of extortion.
