With CABEI support, studies begin to build Judicial Complex to benefit 52,000 rural Costa Ricans


Results to build a Judicial Morgue, a Forensic Medical Clinic and the Courts of Justice in Buenos Aires de Puntarenas will be ready in 15 months.

San Jose, March 31st, 2022.- Through a US$470,000 loan approved by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), feasibility studies and final design of the Judicial Complex in Buenos Aires de Puntarenas, in southern Costa Rica, began this week.

The initiative contemplates the construction of two buildings for the benefit of more than 52,000 people, including vulnerable groups such as the elderly, indigenous populations and those living in extreme poverty, such as a Judicial Morgue and a Forensic Medical Clinic; and the Courts of Justice where all the judicial offices currently operating in rented premises will be centralized.

"These studies are of great importance so that the inhabitants of the southern part of the country have immediate access to judicial services, pathology and legal medicine without having to travel by different means and incur economic costs to carry out these procedures far from their homes as is currently the case," highlighted CABEI Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi.

The results of the designs, construction plans and environmental studies that determine technical feasibility, among others, are expected to be delivered to the Judicial Branch in 15 months as part of the Technical Cooperation under Contingent Recovery Modality approved by CABEI in 2021.
