Another politician faces sex-related scandal

The scandals keep coming and coming. Friday the man on the hot seat was the mayor of Coronado, Leonardo Herrera Sánchez. He stands accused of embezzlement because he used a municipal car to drive to a motel in San Francisco de Dos Ríos.

In Costa Rica motels are places for sexual encounters.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that a telephone tip came to its confidential information center at midday Friday. Almost immediately, agents from the Sección de Fraudes were en route to the motel where they detained the 40-year-old politician.

The allegation is using municipal property for private use.

The arrest follows a month of allegations of illegality against government officials.
