August 18th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) Police officers arrested 16 people who were blocking the entrances and exits of the condominiums where President Luis Guillermo Solís lives shortly after 1 a.m. on Friday.
The protestors were part of a civic organization from Alajuelita demanding better living conditions for their community. Two minors were amongst those arrested.
Police said that intervention was necessary as the protestors were limiting the freedom of movement of both the president and other condominium residents.
