Five mayors in Costa Rica were arrested Monday, November 15, by the Judicial Investigation Agency (OIJ) for allegedly being linked to corruption cases,  and, more raids are to follow say local media reports.

According to the Costa Rican daily El Mundo , among the detainees are Johnny Araya, mayor of San José; Alberto Cole, mayor of Osa; Humberto Soto, mayor of Alajuela; Alfredo Córdoba, mayor of San Carlos; and Mario Redondo, mayor of Cartago.

The media highlighted that the director of the OIJ, Walter Espinosa, confirmed the arrests through the operation called Diamante and that about 40 raids are being carried out in municipal offices and houses of some mayors, "for cases related to corruption and influence peddling."

“Prosecutor's Office and OIJ carry out 40 raids for alleged corruption between public officials and the construction company Meco. The arrest of 11 people is confirmed, including five municipal mayors, ”the Costa Rican Public Ministry reported on its Twitter account.

La Nación reported that the operations began at 7:00 am and will continue throughout the day.

“The Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office, together with the OIJ's Anticorruption Section, has carried out an investigation regarding a criminal organization that has been having a direct impact on the country's municipalities. This structure has been directly dedicated to exercising acts of corruption in the cantonal road infrastructure sector, whether made up of mayors, municipal officials or individuals, who have exchanged gifts have intervened to generate undue benefits within administrative contracting processes and issues budgetary and contractual execution ”, explained Glen Calvo Céspedes of the Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office.

Since this Sral who follows her comrades and talking heads propaganda brought up the dirty dozen lets address what Sral, her comrades and the criminals are so scared about! In this film, we take a peek into the so-called "Disinformation Dozen". Are they dangerous spreaders of mis-information or victims of a system seeking to silence voices of dissent. Who will YOU trust? Who are the Dis-Information Dozen? https://rumble.com/vo1o6v-who-are-the-dis-information-dozen.html | Spread it to all...the truth is growing globally against these monsters and killers!

Notice harley that rides on a tool all the time, cannot dispute what the Dr. Fraudchi and Kill Bates now say! What a total jerk this guy is! He and his comrades have spread disinformation and towed the line for nearly 2 years of the criminals behind this genocide! I have been spot on and he and the others drinking the Jones Town Kool-AIDS are part of the Covidian Death Cult (CDC) who are dying in this information war! This is a new type of war never before done as governments have turned against their citizens, not all countries but majority. They will fail and be arrested, prosecuted and executed...it is why they are so desperate. People like Harley are becoming fewer and fewer as many people who were CDC members are revolting...that is why in EU they are having to resort to tyranny and threats of taking away "rights" of those who obeyed the criminals and took the 2 KILL SHOTS but now refuse dose 3 and 4, then 5,6,7,8 we know at least 8 are planned. People are waking up who took the KILL SHOT to realize this has nothing to do with CV19 but there will always be complete idiots like Captain A-hole and Harly, Sral and the rest of the comrades that full on board CDC members until their graves and totalitarian supporters!

Soon globally arrests will be happen for those who participated in the global GENOCIDE! I knew this was coming....everything I have said the last going on 2 years is happening! Fauci, Gates Admit COVID Vaccines Don’t Work as Advertised https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/jeremy-hunt-fauci-gates-covid-vaccines-boosters/ | Those that took the KILL SHOT are about to be shocked worldwide as they learn they have in fact not only been given "not as advertised" as the KILLERS are now saying...soon they will learn they are only 0.8% to 1.3% effective which is near zero per long published peer review science! Then those KILL SHOTTED will be horrified they have been given AIDS (Immune system collapsing 5% per month), CLOTS (70% have micro blood clots), ADE, Pathogenic Priming which will wipe them out if they get covid again from another KILL SHOTTED carrier of a s super strain...then the kicker that is really going to blow these people's tops off is when they find out these monsters branded them like cattle...yes chipped them. People will lose their minds. The KILL SHOTTED are going to want blood when they finally learn and accept the truth of what these evil have done to them. The children will disrespect and hate their parents and grandparents for forcing this KILL SHOT into them and destroying their lives and stealing their future from them. This is so sick what is happening only the psychopaths' behind this could ever create something as evil as this, they ALL deserve to be prosecuted and executed, which is coming too. Some of you reading this won't be around long enough to see the prosecutions and executions. The magnitude of evil is beyond words. Many of you elected to ignore all my science I posted and warnings provided, that is your fault. Now the answer they are telling their victims in this madness by these KILLERS is to push more KILL SHOTS that are destroying peoples immune system, that is completely insane!
