Prosecutors lost track of two convicted men

Prosecutors went public Monday to admit that two persons convicted of crimes Oct. 5, 2006, have vanished. One is a former legislative deputy.

The Fiscalía Adjunta de Ejecución de la Pena de San José identified the two as Carlos Enrique Salas Salazar and Carlos Eduardo Jiménez Solano. The men were in liberty while their case was appealed to the Sala III high criminal court. That court confirmed the conviction and the sentence last June 4, said the prosecutor’s office.

Both face six years in prison when captured.

Prosecutors said that Salas negotiated an increase in budget for the Asociación de Desarrollo Integral in San Rafael de San Ramón de Alajuela where Jiménez worked. The money was supposed to be used for scholarships, but it was used to pay debts, said the prosecutor.
