[JURIST] A Costa Rican court ordered Friday that former President Rafael Calderon be held in jail for nine months while officials investigate allegations of corruption. Calderon was detained at the courthouse after testifying in his defense against charges of receiving bribes, illegal enrichment and criminal association. Prosecutors in the case are investigating Calderon's alleged receiving of $450,000 of a $40 million Finnish loan meant to aid Costa Rica in the purchase of medical equipment. Calderon is the second government official detained in the past week. Saturday, a Costa Rican judge ordered former president and recently-resigned OAS Secretary-General Miguel Angel Rodriguez to be put under house arrest while prosecutors discover if he illegally took commissions from government contracts.
