Homicides Fall in Costa Rica for the First Time in Six Years

first_img Costa Rica recorded 474 homicides in 2011, 53 fewer than the previous year, representing the first decrease in the last six years, the judicial branch announced in a statement on May 31. According to the official report, the homicide rate per 100,000 inhabitants went from 11.5 in 2010 to 10.3 in 2011. The judicial branch specified that this is the second time in the last ten years that a decline in the number of homicides has been recorded. “The first decrease in homicides took place in 2004, going from 300 to 280 deaths,” the statement emphasized. Among those dead as a result of homicide, 378 were Costa Rican nationals, 55 were from Nicaragua, and 14 from Colombia, among other nationalities, according to the report. The statistics indicate that San José, the capital, is the province with the highest number of recorded homicides, 171, followed by Limón, a Caribbean province heavily impacted by disputes among groups of drug traffickers, with 111 murders. Central America is considered the world’s most violent area, according to the UN, with a rate of more than 30 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants, drastically elevated by the situation in the so-called Northern Triangle (Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador), where drug traffickers and gangs sow terror.
