OAS chief lends support to anti-violence measure

Jose Miguel Insulza, the secretary general of the Organization of American States visited Costa Rica’s Ministerio de Justicia y Paz Wednesday to sign a cooperative agreement stating future goals for violence prevention and social inclusion.

Joined by Ana Isabel Garita, the minister, they stressed the importance of improving local public schools and providing additional police force in areas deemed critical. Much of the treaty focuses on supporting women and youth who are most at risk of violence.

According to the document, the Organization of American States agrees to send pertinent information and research to the ministry of justice, as well as overseeing any additional technical training to its employees.
