BritCham donates supplies to Police

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff
To reinforce the fight against smuggling and illegal trade, the Costa Rican British Chamber of Commerce, BritCham, donated security supplies and technological equipment to the Fiscal Control Police.

The donation includes bulletproof vests, tactical boots, a high-tech projector, laptops, monitors, docking stations, IP phones, among others.

This was in addition to the British Embassy donating several training courses on information to prevent smuggling by British experts to Ministry of Finance officials.

"Our Chamber is distinguished by contributing its experience and resources to the strengthening of initiatives that support different areas vital for business development in our country, in this case, for three years, at BritCham we have been contributing to the Control Police Prosecutor donating security implements for his police forces, to safeguard the integrity of the officers when they carry out their important duties,” Carlos Camacho, BritCham vice president said.

According to the ministry, since 2017 BritCham has donated security equipment and supplies to the police.

In November 2020, Ben Lyster-Binns, Her Majesty’s ambassador-designate to Costa Rica and non-resident ambassador to Nicaragua, presented his credentials to Adriana Bolaños Argueta, Vice Minister for Bilateral Affairs and International Cooperation.

"The ambassador Lyster-Binns looks forward to working closely with Costa Rica on a wide range of issues, to continue to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the two nations," the British Embassy said in its statement.

Lyster-Binns took command of the embassy after the departure of the former ambassador Ross Patrick Denny left in October, who was the UK's ambassador since 2015.
