José Luis Martinez Prada has recovered a plot of land he owns in Sixaola, Talamanca. The man, from Spain, is a former diplomat of the European Union in Costa Rica. The matter was settled via an out-of-court conciliatory settlement.
The agreement was signed by the ex-diplomat’s in country legal representative, Mario Salazar Marín, and by Davis Hansell, a resident of Manzanillo, Limón who allegedly usurped the property.
The agreement must be officialized by the Public Prosecutor’s Office. The document states that Davis recognizes Martinez Prada as the sole owner of the 3,746 square meter property. Davis agrees to not disturb this right as well as to manage the de-registration of the plan registered in his name before the National Registry. In the agreement, Davis acknowledges that his plans overlap the documents from 1993 from previous owners who sold the land to Martínez Prada in 1999. The agreement eliminates the damage caused by ideological falsehood. Davis withdrew from the land. Still, there has been a lack of legal management.
