In Honduras Case Bid to Sever Bonilla Redux As Motion to Unseal JOH Affidavit In Docket

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 25 – After the president of Honduras' brother Tony Hernandez was convicted of drug trafficking and sentenced to life plus thirty years, on April 21, 2022 the ex-president himself, Juan Orlando Hernandez, was extradited to the US.

On January 18, Inner City Press live tweeted the final pre-trial conference, thread.

On January 23, after lengthy ex parte sidebars, it was said JOH for the February 12 trial could get a second lawyer, at the US taxpayers' expense, by filing out a sworn affidavit claiming poverty. He did - and at 6 pm on January 23 Inner City Press filed with the Court a motion to unseal JOH's financial affidavit - as it requested, and got, for Tigre Bonilla. Now in docket - letter now on CourtListener here DocumentCloud here

  On January 25, Pineda's lawyers put in a letter reiterating their request to sever the trial of Bonilla, who was also said to have a "file" on JOH. They state: "As confirmed at the January 23 appearance, Mr. Bonilla is prepared to testify at trial, in pertinent part, that: (i) while the other charged defendants are or may be members of the charged conspiracy, Mr. Bonilla himself was not; and (ii) the government’s witnesses have colluded and conspired to wrongfully accuse Mr. Bonilla to exact revenge against Mr. Bonilla for his previous work as an official with the Honduran National Police." Full letter on Patreon here. We'll have more on all this.
