The Organization of American States (OAS), through the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD) will support the government of Costa Rica in the establishment of two pilot drug treatment courts under judicial supervision that will be presented tomorrow, February 8, in San Jose.
The Vice-Minister of the Presidency for Security Affairs and CICAD chair, Mauricio Boraschi, and the President of the Supreme Court, Justice Luis Paulino Mora Mora, will sign an agreement that commits multiple agencies across the government to collaborating in this program. The ceremony will cap off a two-day training session for the team of professionals that will be handling DTC cases, including judges, prosecutors, public defenders, and treatment providers, among others. The courts will open in two locations, downtown San Jose and the suburb of Pavas.
