On 20 September, the State Department advised that it was adding 7 persons to the United States’ Undemocratic and Corrupt Actors list, under section 353 of the United States–Northern Triangle Enhanced Engagement Act, which generally makes the perpetrators ineligible for visas and admission to the US. 

  • El Salvador – Elsy Dueñas De Aviles, Oscar Alberto López Jerez, Hector Nahun Martinez Garcia, Jose Angel Perez Chacon, and Luis Javier Suárez Magaña, current Magistrates of the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court;
  • Guatemala – Maria Consuelo Porras Argueta De Porres, current Attorney General; and Angel Arnoldo Pineda Avila, current Secretary General of the Public Ministry.
