Party Cop Busted!

54554_620A traffic official (oficial de Tránsito) was arrested on Wednesday by the specialized section on traffic crimes of the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ), for charging up to ¢60.000 colones (US$120) to look the other way.

Upon inspection of the patrol vehicle, Judicial agents also found a dozen beers, a bottle of whiskey and several pornographic DVDs.

The traffic official now faces additional charges in addition to taking bribes.

But, the case will probably won’t go past the charges being filed.

Of the 20 cases of corruption against traffic officials in the past couple of years, not one has gone to court, let alone anyone serving a jail sentence.
