Absolute Poker Offices in Costa Rica Raided

Costa Rica law enforcement raided several offices in Escazú, Santa Ana and Rohmoser this morning.  The offices belonged to Innovative Data Solutions which was the customer service center for the Cereus Network.  A PokerStars customer service center was also raided.  It appears that raid turned out to be nothing and it is back to business as usual at the PokerStars office in Costa Rica.  The raids may have been related to the labor dispute between Cereus and IDS where IDS employees were demanding their severance packages as required by law.

Instead of trying to piece everything together it is probably best to go to the sources.
