Former first lady arrested for stealing gov’t funds
TEGUCIGALPA— Military police searched the home of former Honduran President Porfirio Lobo on Wednesday and arrested his wife as part of a corruption probe by an international team of investigators. Police took into custody former first lady Rosa Elena Bonilla and her brother-in-law Mauricio Mora. Investigators said Bonilla, 48, deposited $600,000 in government funds to her personal account five days before Lobo ended his four-year term in January 2014. Bonilla also failed to account for at least $6 million in government funds for her office during her husband’s rule. “Today we take a great step against impunity,” said Gabriela Castellanos, director of the National Anticorruption Council.
