FBI launches corruption allegations in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras

FBI launches corruption allegations in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras

The United States Department of Justice has launched an email to [email protected] to obtain information on corrupt actors from the northern triangle of Central America.

This Friday, the United States Department of Justice announced that it has implemented a tax on complaints. It will support the anti-corruption mission in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

This is part of Washington’s efforts to combat the plunder of public funds, which, according to its diagnosis, are a major factor in the irregular migration of people from these three countries.

US Deputy Attorney General Kenneth Palit Jr. confirmed that the move corresponds to the Vice President’s (Kamala Harris)’s visit to Guatemala this year: Corruption and impunity undermine democracy, promote disorderly immigration and threaten our national security because they deport .

Polyat Jr. added email address [email protected] “Anyone with information about corrupt actors in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras will break US laws or move their criminal proceeds through the United States.”

These complaints will be processed by the Anti-Corruption Task Force of the Judiciary, which will determine whether the United States can find a legal way to take action. “It will allow the investigation, pursuit, confiscation and return of stolen property from the people of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.”

This corruption force includes personnel managed by international corruption practices laws, the cryptocurrency related property recovery effort and the International Money Laundering Division. There is also a connection with special agents from the Narcotics and Dangerous Narcotics Division and the FBI’s anti-corruption unit.

“This is more than a warning.”

To Eduardo Escobar, managing director of Acción Ciudadana, “Rather than a warning to the federal government that US officials, including their own officials, should be prosecuted for corruption, they must fight this atrocity.”

In his view, this applies to the fact that the responsibilities of investigating, preventing and prosecuting corruption in these countries are completely ineffective.

According to Escobar, the United States is “raising the issue of ineffective action to punish the corruption of regional governments.”

Wilson Sandoval, co-ordinator of the Legal Advisory Center for Anti-Corruption (Alak-Funde), said it was considered another pillar of Joe Biden’s administration to fight corruption in the region.

It is, in addition, linked to Angel’s list of corrupt and undemocratic actors who lose their US visas. To date, 19 Salvadorans have been appointed to the list, including the president’s chief executive, his legal secretary, his labor minister, two former ministers and judges assigned to the constitutional chamber.

Wilson Sandoval described the move as “valuable” and said “corruption cannot be prosecuted through local mechanisms without the cooperation of the administration or legitimacy.”
