OAS urges Honduras to resolve scandal

Friday, December 2, 2016


The Organization of American States is calling on Honduras to work more swiftly to clear up a $300 million embezzlement scandal involving the country's social security system.

The call came from a special mission created to root out corruption in Honduras, the organization's first such foray. It was created in February at Honduras' invitation amid growing street protests calling for an international body such as the UN-sponsored one that investigated corruption in neighboring Guatemala.
