Murder-for-hire plot blamed on permit denial

Investigators said that two businessmen hired hit men to eliminate a Pérez Zeledón municipal engineer who was blocking plans for a gas station.

Four persons were detained during four raids conducted Wednesday in that community and in Dominical.

Investigators said that the engineer would not approve the gas station for technical reasons and that he now is under police protection.
