Arias Gives Statement in Sexual Assault, Abuse Complaints

Wednesday, 13 February 2019 12:38 PM

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — Nobel Peace Prize laureate and two-time Costa Rican President Oscar Arias has met with prosecutors to give a statement in two criminal complaints against him alleging sexual assault and sexual abuse.

Arias appeared at the prosecutor's office wearing a blue suit and tie and accompanied by his lawyer. He denied the first accusation when it surfaced last week but has declined further comment as more allegations have emerged.

Arias told journalists Wednesday he has always answered their questions during 50 years in public life, but "on this occasion my lawyer has requested I not make statements."

At least six women have made accusations against Arias ranging from unwanted advances to alleged assault.
