Costa Rica, 20 May 2021. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN), through the Global Programme on Cybercrime, delivered a training addressed to Costa Rican prosecutors in cybercrime investigation. The training took place from 6 to 17 May 2021.
