Eladio Aponte Aponte, a former Justice of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice, who was removed by the National Assembly on March 20, for his links with alleged drug lord Walid Makled, left Costa Rica on Tuesday for the United States, with support from US authorities, reported an official source.

Mauricio Boraschi, the Vice Minister of the Presidency and head of Costa Rica's intelligence and security agency (DIS), told local media that the former Venezuelan judge took a US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) airplane, Efe reported.

Boraschi added that Aponte travelled to the US after he received a letter from US authorities allowing him to enter the North American country. The former Venezuelan Justice made "direct" negotiations with the DEA in the past few days.

"He left Costa Rica by his own will after making contact with US authorities and receiving a letter to enter the United States," the Costa Rican top official said.
