There are facts to be told to the government of the former FMLN guerrilla Mauricio Funes (2009-2014). Sanchez Seron was vice president at the time.

In a practice branded “arbitrary” by the FMLN and other organizations, Salvador authorities last week arrested former ministers and Funes ex-ministers.

The Attorney General’s Office (FGR) this Sunday issued a financial restraining order against 10 former officials of the government of former President Mauricio Funes (2009-2014). They were charged with money and property fraud, and illegal enrichment.

Among the accused were Violetta Menzver, Carlos Cozares, Erlinda Handal, Calicsto Mejia and Hugo Flores Hidalgo who were sent to the Isitro Menendez Judicial Center under strong security measures.

Outside the courts, members of the FMLN and its militancy opposed the arrest.

Oscar Ortiz, FMLN general secretary and former vice president of the country, pointed out that “former officers have” lost their independence “without fully respecting the legal aspects as they were in the 1980s.”

“We will come to the end with them, FMLN will be with them” and “We will continue to fight in these dark moments in the country,” he said. He added: “Today we want to destroy all the political parties opposed to this ruling elite who want to use all the resources of the state economically.”

Annabelle Beloso, the current FMLN vice-president in the legislature, called the detention of former officers “a snatch of freedom” and declared that “we have retreated on the basis of law, institutionalism and above all the democratic process.” Moreover, he described the government of Naib Bukel as a dictatorship.

“This cannot be allowed in the country. We have created an independent organization in which an organization should prevail and now we see them all being eliminated,” FMLN historian Nidia Thias declared.

FMLN governments have maintained a very close relationship with Maduro, especially Sanchez Seron, whom the president described as “one of the most relevant leaders in the political history of the Central American nation.”

In May, President Naib Bukel replaced the Attorney General, who had re-directed corruption investigations against previous governments.
