Spain’s Prime Minister Praised Costa Rica’s Handling Of The Gutiérrez Murder

Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, who arrived in Costa Rica on Thursday, in his first official visito to the country, to conclude his tour of four countries in Latin America, said that his country was gratified by Costa Rica’s efforts to ensure that Spanish tourist Arantxa Gutiérrez’s family suffered as little as possible.

Gutiérrez was sexually abused and murdered on August 4, in Pococí, Limón. The only suspect in the crime is a man named Diaz Hawkings, who was arrested two hours after the discovery of the body. The suspect is not in preventive detention while the authorities prepare for the criminal trial.

“I wanted to thank you, President, for a fact that for us was very tragic, as was the murder of Arantxa Gutiérrez. And the only thing I can say is thanks,” said Sánchez, who praised the Alavardo government for using all its resources to the case and follow up with the victim’s family.

“This, for Spain, the murder moved us, but also we were gratified to see a society like the Costa Rican, and its Government, committed to the family suffering as little as possible and of course the facts were clarified as soon as possible,” the Prime Minister continued.

“I publicly wanted to recognize the good job of the government of Costa Rica,” Sánchez concluded.
