Former El Salvador president Funes guilty of illicit enrichment

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

A court in El Salvador has found former President Mauricio Funes and his son guilty of illicit enrichment and ordered them to pay back $420,000 to the state in a civil judgment that does not contemplate any prison time.

The court ruled that Funes and his son were unable to justify the origin of the funds and barred both from holding public office for 10 years.
