US Sentences Former Honduran President’s Son for Drug Trafficking

A U.S. Court will today sentence Fabio Lobo, the son of Honduran former president, Porfirio Lobo (2010-14), who pleaded guilty to drug trafficking in the country, according to local media reports.

U.S. authorities captured the former Honduran leader’s son in May 2015, as part of a ‘trap operation’ in Haiti, after a New York Attorney charged him with ‘conspiracy to import and distribute various kilos of cocaine in United States’.

According to the case files, in 2014 Lobo agreed to help – by transporting several tons of cocaine through Honduras – two Mexican drug traffickers who actually turned out to be undercover agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Leading to Mexican media reports in July that Fabio Lobo was one of the partners of Joaquin ‘Chapo’ Guzman in Honduras.

A year after being captured when he traveled to Haiti to receive his payment which corresponded to the profits made from the transaction of cocaine, the son of former president pleaded guilty to the crimes before Judge Lorna Schofield, who fixed the date of his sentencing for Thursday.
