The Israeli flag was also burned.
The Ticos’ demonstration in support of Palestine was met with anger, arrests, and vandalism.
Students’ federations, political parties and student groups called for the protest in front of Israel Embassy.
The tension grew when the protesters started to paint the walls of diplomatic headquarters, and set the State of Israel flag on fire.
Public Force officers were confronted by this incident and intervened. They caused pushes, and arrested a man, and woman. The matter was referred to Public Ministry.
We understand that one person was prohibited from entering the diplomatic headquarters. Even before her sentence, she had been sentenced to prison for defaming national symbols like the Israeli flag.
Marlon Cuillo, Director of Public Force at DIARIO EXTRA, stated that the reason for arresting the suspect was the damage done to public and private property. The group that organized the protest said that it was legitimate, and that the police were “violent” and “repressive”. They also “intimidated people in front of diplomatic headquarters with heavy caliber weapons”.
Cubillo, however, stated that the protesters, along with vandalizing the diplomatic HQ, also threatened his officers.
The Public Force guarded the area. Our obligation to guard the place was part of what we did. They were forbidden to damage public and private property. Even the private security guards were reprimanded.
They wanted to get into the building.
This group painted the property and then the individuals were transferred to us to write a report, and this was sent on to the relevant authorities,” concluded he.
The pro-Palestine Ticos Movement concluded before the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship.
