Counterfeiting Material Found in Honduras Hotel

February 17, 2006

TEGUCIGALPA – Honduran authorities on Saturday found paper and chemicals for counterfeiting money at the hotel of an Irani who was shot to death in La Esperanza in the western province of Intibuca, police said.

The local police commissioner, Guido Gómez, told reporters that officers had searched the mountainside hotel Cabañas Los Pinos where the Iranian owner, Branni Medy Mohammed, 52, and his watchman, Juan Domínguez, were shot dead Friday.

The operation uncovered two suitcases containing paper for counterfeiting bills and eight containers of chemicals supposedly for “work in the falsification of money,” Gómez said.

The police official did not specify either the amount of paper found, its origin or the date when the material might have been acquired. He added that the search also brought documents to light that made them surmise that Mohammed “had contacts in Mexico and Venezuela.”

Gómez said that Mohammed lived at least 10 years in Honduras with his Honduran wife and their three children, all minors.
