End of a golden age for Central America’s prosecutors
Attorneys-general in the countries of the northern triangle of Central America have made war on corruption. Politicians are itching to get rid of them.
By early next year the three countries will have new chief prosecutors. El Salvador is due to replace five supreme-court justices. Politicians want to appoint tamer successors. The United States, which has helped in the fight against corruption, is retreating from the fray. All this threatens progress.
