Heading for the border

Javier Figueroa, the Police sub-director who resigned last Friday in the wake of the murder of the cops implicated in the killings of three Salvadorean politicians has now legged it to Costa Rica with his wife and children. He was one of two very senior officials in the PNC whose resignations were forced, apparently because authorities feared for the impartiality of their investigations into events at El Boquerón. It is now believed the four policemen were killed by inmates using weapons hidden in a DVD player, and not by an armed gang from outside as previously thought.
