The failed Diquís plant was a project that spanned three administrations but didn’t get far. Still, somehow, ₡88,557 million were used for this project that was stopped in 2011 and cancelled in 2018.
The Comptroller’s Office is investigating how this could have happened. Specifically, it has opened an administrative procedure against the ex-hierarch, three other former workers, and one current employee.
All of them must appear in court on November 2. The reasons that the investigation is directed toward these individuals has not been disclosed. The preliminary investigation was completed and possible irregularities found.
The procedure may lead to sanctions like disqualification from holding public office. ICE may be ordered to recover resources, if patrimonial responsibility is confirmed. A formal investigation will be conducted.
