    Investigation details keep coming out on President Laura Chinchilla’s border-road project along the San Juan River near the Nicaragua Costa Rica border.

    It came out last week that the National Roadway Council (CONAVI) hired five businesses for more than $$5.6 million UDS to work on the Nicaragua Costa Rica border road project, unfortunately those that were hired to do the work had no equipment and no experience working on state projects.

    Last week, La Nación discovered two of the hired contractors flew to Florida USA to rent equipment for the construction work on the road. Also revealed was that the contractors were officials of CONAVI and that they ended up billing CONAVI approximately $4 million USD.

    The controversial project border road has caused former Transport Minister Francisco Jiménez to resign earlier this year, and initiated numerous raids on CONAVI offices in June by Judicial Investigation Police.

    The project was initiated as an emergency decree allowing the project to avoid any environmental impact studies. This caused uproar with environmentalists. The “emergency decree” was result of an alleged incursion of Nicaraguan forces into Costa Rica territory.

    Numerous reports of standards violations have also surfaced since the commencement of the project.
