El Salvador graft trial set for ex-President Francisco Flores
SAN SALVADOR – A court in El Salvador’s capital has set a Jan. 18 date for the trial of ex-President Francisco Flores for allegedly embezzling $15 million donated by Taiwan more than a decade ago.
The trial also could implicate other members of Flores’ National Republican Alliance party.
The allegations against Flores were first made public in 2013 by then-President Mauricio Funes. Flores voluntarily turned himself in the following year to respond to the allegations, which he denies.
