Minister admits his traffic failings

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The minister who supervises the traffic police and other road agencies characterized as sensationalism the disclosure that he accumulated 13 traffic tickets since 1996.

The minister, Carlos Segnini Villalobos, said that all the information was open to the public anyway. He said there were other topics more important and more urgent for the country instead of his driving record.

Segnini is minister of Obras Públicas y Transportes. He said he was not going to justify the traffic violations. He has paid and learned from them, he said.

The ministry released a list including the date, the violation and the fine paid.

The most recent was Feb. 16 when the infraction was not respecting a traffic sign. That cost the minister 50,274 colons, about $93. In fact, seven of the 13 violations were of this type, extending back from Aug. 27, 1998. Another was for parking incorrectly.

But Oct. 12, 2007, the violation was alcohol.

Murder suspects, jailers tussle

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The suspects in the murder of turtle protector Jairo Mora got into a fight with guards Monday afternoon at the cells of the Tribunales de Justicia in Limón.

The Judicial Investigating Organization, which provides security for the courts, said that when a jailer was taking the suspects to the afternoon session of the murder trial, one of the accused pushed and hit the judicial worker.

Other suspects joined in, said the Judicial Investigating Organization and other jailers had to intervene to quell the melee.

The judicial agency said that those involved will face another allegation of resistance to authority.

One of the suspects was treated for injuries, the agency said.

Public employees invited to march

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Public employees have been given leave to march today in a demonstration against violence to women.

The event organized by the Instituto Nacional de Mujeres begins at 9 a.m. at Parque la Merced.

President Luis Guillermo Solís is participating. He said his cabinet also will march.

Public employees can be out of their offices from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. as long as there are sufficient persons to cover the work, said the president.

Solís said that today is a day to celebrate the battles that women have won to take the places that have been denied them for much of history. In Spanish the day is called Día de la No Violencia.

In another activity for the day the U.S. Embassy is sponsoring with the security ministry the showing of the documentary "Justicia para mi hermana."

The movie, directed by Californian Kimberly Bautista, related the three-year struggle of a Guatemalan woman to bring the murder of her sister to justice. Ms. Bautista is expected to be present.

The embassy said that in the three years, the woman encountered many obstacles, including a judge who was accused of killing his own wife and witnesses who declined to testify out of fear. Eventually the boyfriend was jailed.

The audience today will be police officers.

Industrial policy sought by government

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The government convened a forum Monday to discuss a policy for industry. The goal of the forum was to define the steps to create such a policy.

The Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Comercio is taking the lead, and other ministries are expected to participate. The ministry also is seeking support from the chambers of commerce, banks and similar institutions.

Luis Guillermo Solís was quoted as saying such a policy is needed to reinforce the importance of industry.

The session was supported by the Proyecto Procalidad of the European Union.
