Go after the rich and powerful

Dear A.M. Costa Rica:

Unfortunately again Costa Rica is suffering a black eye internationally.

Corruption, corruption. The new president has an opportunity to fulfill his promise for change and transparency. Draft and present a new bill that would change the law so that powerful people and corrupted officials would go to court and be sentenced  in two years. The new law might be called the Eduardo Li law.

The rich and powerful people like to sit in the court for 10 and 15 years. No justice and no jail. I am sure everyone can identify someone who fits in this category.

The honest and hard-working people deserve better than an old broken system that happily employes judges and lawyers for 10 years. Time for some changes to go after the rich and powerful crooks for a better Costa Rica.
