Costa Rica international rule of law project visit

On 9 December 2019, international programmes manager, Lizzette Robleto de Howarth, visited Costa Rica to find out what support there might be for a potential international rule of law project.

The visit was requested by the British Embassy in Costa Rica and the Costa Rican Ministry of Justice and Peace.

The successful visit included a meeting with the British Embassy and a roundtable with key public servants, including vice-minister Viviana Boza Chacon and head of the Repatriations Unit Walter Corea.

Backing from the British Embassy was significant and we’re grateful for the support provided by:

  • Anne Aichroth, deputy head of mission
  • Andrew Castle, vice-consul
  • Denise Lewis Martinez, director for press

Lizzette also visited the offices of BLP, a Costa Rican law firm with regional branches throughout Central America, and met with representatives of the Colegio de Abogados de Costa Rica.
