COULD AN FORMER MONEY LAUNDERER FOR DRUG TRAFFICKERS BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF HONDURAS?

On 1 October, Vice News reported that Yani Rosenthal served time in a US federal prison on a charge connected to the drug trade, but now wants to run for president back home.  He is the scion of what was once one of the most rich and powerful families in the country – is now preparing to launch a bid for the presidency.  In 2015, OFAC announced sanctions against him, his father, a cousin and their vast business empire. At the time, the Rosenthal family owned a bank, soccer club, newspaper and meatpacking plant while acting as kingmakers in the government.
