El Salvador court freezes ex-president's accounts

Friday, February 12, 2016

El Salvador’s Supreme Court ordered bank accounts of former president Mauricio Funes, who is facing civil trial for alleged illegal enrichment, frozen because the origin of the $700,000 they contain was unknown.

The court also said it might order the “preventive seizure” of properties and other assets owned by Funes, who was in office between 2009 and 2014.
