Corruption Running Rampant in Honduras Under Mel Zelaya

Honduras has always been catalogued as a country affected by corruption, but during the past 3 years of president Manuel Zelaya in office, the corruption levels have exponentially increased.

It is not uncommon to open the daily newspapers and read about five or six new cases of corruption each day committed by public servants that range from the president himself, his advisors, ministers and low level public servants.

The Internet Center for Corruption Index has released the 2008 Corruption Perception Index in which Honduras ranks in position 126. in 2005 at the end of Ricardo Maduro’s government, Honduras ranked 107. That is the greatest downward loss ever experimented by Honduras.
