Security To Be Tight For Obama Visit


A major 24-hour daily police operation is part of the preparations of the Ministry of Security for the visit of the President of the United States Barack Obama and of the heads of state of the SICA countries.

The summit of the Central American Integration System (SICA) will be held in San Jose on May 3rd and 4th.

The minister guaranteed full coverage the 24 hours and asserted that the different police bodies and administrative staffs will partake in the security of the leaders.

“It is a major challenge to handle such an important event,” Minister Zamora pointed out. He chose not to disclose the number of officers which will be in charge of the security of the chiefs of state, but he was quick to point out that it will be “quite significant”.

President Obama is to arrive in Costa Rica next May 3rd for an official visit and the following day will be the special guest at the SICA summit.
