Costa Rica: Maria del Carmen Cruz Lizano

Application for the appointment of a Commissioner to collect evidence for a criminal investigation in Costa Rica into Maria del Carmen Cruz Lizano for alleged fraud while working for Intrade ABC SA. The application for the appointment of a Commissioner was denied by the U. S. Court because the attached request for assistance from Costa Rica contained no mention of Maria del Carmen Cruz Lizano and appears to be for an unrelated investigation, specifically a tax evasion investigation into La Nacion SA, Manuel Francisco Jimenez Echeverria, Javier Leon Longhi, Luis Javier Uribe, Carlos Alberto Gonzalez, Fernando Vargas Espinoza and Capital Leasing Corporation.
