President Confirms Sending Security Minister to Prison

President Porfirio Lobo Sosa sent the Minister of Security, Pompeyo Bonilla, to San Pedro Sula to address the emergency at the San Pedro penal center. His priority was to preserve the lives of those incarcerated at the prison.

“We should do everything possible to avoid the loss of human lives, which is what concerns us all; everything else can be recovered,” said President Lobo to the press minutes after learning about the fire in the San Pedro prison.

He added that the allocation of land for the construction of the new penal centre in San Pedro Sula is close to being resolved. “This has been approved and is already in the National Congress to expedite the process,” he said.
