Honduras President - Drug Smuggler

The acting US homeland security secretary, Chad Wolf, said: “Honduras is a valued and proven partner to the United States in managing migration and promoting security and prosperity in Central America.”

US federal prosecutors have filed motions saying the Honduran president, Juan Orlando Hernández, took bribes from drug traffickers and had the country’s armed forces protect a cocaine laboratory and shipments to the US. The documents quote Hernández as saying he wanted to “shove the drugs right up the noses of the gringos by flooding the United States with cocaine”.

The motions also implicate senior military, police, political and business figures in laundering money and bribery.
