Problems found in civil registry

Of the 45,481 filings in the civil registry from 2007 to 2014, 7,591 do not have an official seal, said the Contraloría General de la República.

The seal or the signature of the person doing the registration is vital, the watchdog agency said.

The Contraloría said it checked the files of births, marriages and deaths at the Registro Civil of the Tribunal Supremo de Elecciones. And, it said, it found problems with the system.
