IMF Hands $769M More to Honduras Despite Narco JOH Being Named in SDNY Trials

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 6 – At the International Monetary Fund's May 6 embargoed briefing, Inner City Press asked the IMF about Colombia, here.

 Hours afterward, this: "An International Monetary Fund (IMF) team led by Ms. Joyce Wong conducted a mission via videoconferencing on the fourth Review of Honduras’ IMF-supported program under the Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) and the Standby Credit Facility (SCF). Upon concluding the mission, Ms. Wong issued the following statement:  “We are happy to announce that the IMF team reached a staff-level agreement with the Honduran authorities on the conclusion of the fourth Review under their economic reform program supported by the SBA and SCF. The agreement is subject to approval by the IMF’s Executive Board, tentatively scheduled for June. Staff will also propose augmenting access under the SBA/SCF arrangement by SDR150 million (about US$215 million), bringing total access to SDR537 million (about US$769 million). The increase is justified in the context of balance of payments needs brought on by the tropical storms and continued pandemic. The financing will support the authorities’ reconstruction and efforts to combat COVID-19."

This says nothing of JOH's ties with narco-traffickers (like his imprisoned brother Tony Hernandez) that came out at trial in the SDNY court in New York, including campaign funds from El Chapo.

We'll have more on this.

This as there is still no disclosure of the San Tome and other business of  Pedro Guimarães e Melo De Oliveira Guterres, the son of Antonio Guterres whose UN is now spreading COVID-19 in South Sudan with a UN bus with no social distancing.
