Three former Salvador presidents probed for graft

Monday, February 15, 2016

El Salvador's past three presidents have now been accused of corruption, a possible sign the Supreme Court is ready to take on the nation's highest political office.

Former president Mauricio Funes (2009-2014) is likely to face three separate investigations into his assets. Meanwhile the Supreme Court has informed his predecessor, Elías Antonio Saca (2004-2009), that he must account for over $6 million in personal income. And deceased former president Francisco Flore was also entangled in corruption cases.
