Chief of office for victims faces abuse allegations

The nation’ chief prosecutor confirmed Wednesday afternoon that a member of his staff was being investigated for sexually abusing subordinates.

Jorge Chavarría, the chief prosecutor, said the case involves five women. Three of them claim sexual harassment. The suspect, who was detained, is the head of the Poder Judicial’s office in defense of victims.

The crimes alleged appear to have taken place over a long period but the women only filed complaints this week.
