Honduran President’s Brother Convicted of Moving Tons of Coke

Court House News

Only two days into their deliberations, a federal jury in New York reached a verdict sure to cause a political earthquake in Latin America. Honduran ex-congressman Antonio “Tony” Hernández was found guilty Friday of a drug-trafficking conspiracy that prosecutors say also involved that country’s president.

“Former Honduran congressman Tony Hernandez was involved in all stages of the trafficking through Honduras of multi-ton loads of cocaine that were destined for the U.S.,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement this afternoon. “Hernandez bribed law enforcement officials to protect drug shipments, solicited large bribes from major drug traffickers, and arranged machinegun-toting security for cocaine shipments.”

Trial began two weeks ago with a shocking allegation: Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Richman told a jury that the ex-congressman passed off a $1 million bribe from drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán to his brother, Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández. More

  2. Wait a minute here….how was he convicted? Shouldn’t we be welcoming him with free everything?

    Truthfully, with all of the drug deaths, he should have been charged with accessory to murder, and this piece of shit from yet another shithole country should be executed.

    He brings absolutely nothing to society, and the fucking dems that think we should accept people from countries like this with no questions asked don’t either.

    I thought we got to try an ex-senator because there wasn’t anyone left in Honduras.

  4. As we learned, this is no different than the US swamp, though idiots Obama and Clinton took it off the a cliff.

    GOD BLESS DONALD TRUMP
