Ex-Honduran President Added to U.S. List of Corrupt Officials over Drug Trafficking

HeadlineFeb 08, 2022

The Biden administration has confirmed it quietly banned former Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández from entering the United States and placed him on a list that tracks corrupt Central American officials last year. The State Department said Monday it added Hernández on its Corrupt and Undemocratic Actors list in July, citing multiple credible media reports and sworn witness testimony accusing Hernández of aiding in drug trafficking and using drug money to finance his campaign. Hernández’s right-wing regime for years was backed by the U.S. government despite numerous reports of human rights violations. Hernández’s brother was convicted of cocaine trafficking in the U.S. in 2019.
