In the cable released by WikiLeaks, dated July 10. 2009 and published by the Madrid newspaper El Pais on Monday, Hodges recommends that Jaime Aquilino Hurtado, national police commander from April 2008 to June 2009, be stripped of his U.S. visa.

The cable says he used the position “to extort cash and property, misappropriate public funds, facilitate human trafficking and obstruct the investigation and prosecution of corrupt colleagues.”

    Assange and Diplomatic immunity???? Hold your horses.

    In Costa Rica the defacto President Oscar Arias with his secret (wikileaks) “US vetted” CIA Presidential Police – La DIS & multinational corporations control all media and the court system.

    The DIS and the US threaten and attack all here in Costa Rica and intimidate journalists in the US who attempt to disseminate Oscar Arias Presidential cartel extortion, blackmail, violence against women,human rights abuses and beatings (torture) of thousands upon thousands of innocent citizens.

    It is a state apparatus of extortion, violence, terorrism, beatings and constitutional and human rights violations.

    Cost Rican Presidency has threatened us and other journalists with jail sentences should we reveal corruption and Constitutional violations.

    “New law imposes a sentence (between four to eight years) in prison to those who obtain “secret political information”.
