Fast, fair justice is not seen in the Costa Rican system

find it ironic, may be even a little hypocritical, that Costa Rica wants fast and honest justice from the International Court in the Hague. Perhaps the reason they are praying for their desire outcome and fair treatment is because they should know that in their court system they’ll never see fast and common sense justice. Just talk to the many people who have been involved in court cases in the Costa Rican justice system for years or decades.

President Laura Chinchilla repeatedly says she wants Costa Rica to be a First World country. I’m sorry but one of the things Costa Rica will need is an honest and effective justice system. Being on Twitter, Facebook and loving the Chinese will not be enough. Good luck, Costa Rica
