Shortly after Luis Guillermo Solís took office nearly a year ago, aides noticed that there were fewer vehicles at Casa Presidencial than records said there should be.
Solís even mentioned this during his 100-day speech.
Now Casa Presidencial has completed a study that finds officials are short 115 vehicles. All that are available are 43 vehicles, said a report.
Aides are blaming inadequate controls by previous administrations. A complaint has been filed with the prosecutor’s office.
Casa Presidencial also said Monday that a decree had been issued asking other government offices to keep an eye out for the missing vehicles.
A summary said that aides do not assume that anything illegal happened, but they do not have any evidence that the vehicles were legally transferred.
