Government Agents Snoop on Sports Star

Twenty-four staff of the Judicial Investigation Department in Costa Rica are being investigated for improperly using the department's database to access personal information about Real Madrid and their goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

While it seems the inappropriate access of Navas' information was motivated by curiosity such use of the database is not authorized according to the department head Francisco Segura.

"there was no justification for their actions as agents only have authority to access the "information platform" during an investigation."
