Tegucigalpa, January 29 (RHC)-- In news from Honduras, an explosive new investigation by the Associated Press says Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández’s new National Police chief personally helped facilitate a massive cocaine delivery to a drug cartel boss in 2013.
The report says José David Aguilar Morán was serving as the chief of intelligence for the National Police when a police officer busted other officers escorting a tanker truck filled with more than 1,700 pounds of cocaine. Aguilar then reportedly personally ordered the corrupt officers to be freed and the drugs delivered. The U.S. street value of the cocaine shipment was over $20 million.
The AP investigation is another blow to the government of President Juan Orlando Hernández, who was sworn in on Saturday after a highly contentious re-election that the opposition and even the Organization of American States says was riddled with fraud.
