Former Honduran president sentenced to 45 years

American court ordered that Juan Orlando Hernández pay a fine of $8 million

The former president of Honduras Juan Orlando Hernández, a former ally of the United States, was sentenced to 45 years in prison and five more years of supervised release by a New York court for several crimes related to drug trafficking and the use of weapons, agencies reported.

The court also imposed a fine of 8 million dollars and urged his lawyer to clarify in two weeks how he will pay it. He also pointed out that he will decide in 120 days which prison will be where Hernández, 55 years old and currently in Brooklyn jail, will have to serve his sentence.

According to the court, the former president was a man with two faces: with one he proclaimed his commitment against drug trafficking, and with the other he facilitated the export of tons of cocaine to the United States, drugs worth 10 million dollars. .

In addition, the court noted that the sentence - if he fulfills it in full he will be released from prison with 100 years - sent a message to the educated and well dressed not to believe that they are going to escape the accusations.
