“Up Yours” Costa Rica’s Former Ombudsman Tells Security Minister

“Up Yours” was the message by former Exdefensora de los Habitantes (Ombudsman) Lisbeth Quesada to the ministro de Seguridad Publica, Mario Zamora.

The former defender of the people made the profane gesture in front of the live television cameras during the noon broadcast of the protest by Telenoticias.

The protest on Thursday was to denounce the deteriorating financial situation at the the Social Security Fund –  the Caja Costarricense del Seguro Social (CCSS or Caka0 – and the violent confrontation between police and protestors a week earlier, when a peaceful protest turned violent, when the nation saw images of its police striking at protestors.

“Tell minister Zamora, who used to work for me at the Defensioria, that he does not run this protest”, Quesada told the viewing audience.

During Thursday’s protest the Fuerza Pública decided to use only female police officers.

The former defender said that the problems of the Caja has been ongoing for many years and part of the financial crisis is attributed to the politicians.

Finally, Quesada said she is indignant of the impunity in Costa Rica.

On the social networks like Facebook and Twitter the former Ombudsman’s gesture generated a variety of reactions.

 

The use of only female police officers was a tactical decision by the police force to avoid a repeat of the violent confrontations during last week’s protest.

Protests took to the streets on Thursday.
