Strong police operation surrounds home of former Honduran president

Strong police operation surrounds home of former Honduran president
Tegucigalpa, Feb 15 (Prensa Latina) A strong police and military contingent remains this Tuesday outside the house of former Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, following an extradition request sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this nation by the US justice system.

The information, spread by the Foreign Ministry on Twitter, alluded to the forwarding of an official communique from the US Embassy to the Supreme Court, through which the provisional arrest of the politician was requested.

Although there were several speculations about the whereabouts of the former president, who handed over power to Xiomara Castro on January 27, lawyer Hermes Ramirez confirmed his presence in the house located in the Tegucigalpa district of San Ignacio.

On February 7, the head of the US diplomacy Antony Blinken assured that Hernandez is included since July 1, 2021, in the list of people pointed out for corruption or responsible for undermining democracy in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

Hernandez, representative of the National Party, is also one of those involved, according to New York prosecutors, in cases linked to drug trafficking for collaborating with the transfer of tons of cocaine to the United States.
