A news release from the US State Department on 20 July advised that it had designated former Honduran President Porfirio “Pepe” Lobo Sosa (Lobo) and former First Lady Rosa Elena Bonilla Avila (Rosa Lobo) due to their alleged involvement in significant corruption.  It is said that President Lobo accepted bribes from the narco-trafficking organization Los Cachiros in exchange for political favours, and Rosa Lobo engaged in significant corruption through fraud and misappropriation of public funds for her personal benefit.  They and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the US, along with the designation of the following members of the Lobos’ immediate family:  their son, Fabio Porfirio Lobo; their daughter, Ambar Naydee Lobo Bonilla; and the Lobos’ minor child.
