Keeping in style, Jimenez said he did not lie about offering former deputy minister of telecommunications, Allan Ruiz, an ambassador ship in return for his resignation over the “gag law” – the draft bill on radio and television – scandal.

According to Jimenez it was Ruiz who lied.

Deja vu? We got the same line from the minister in the case of former deputy ministro de la presidencia, Daniel Soley, a few months back.

Jimenez added that for now he will continue as minister, his future in the post is up President Solis.
