Statement on Money Laundering Arrests and OFAC Designations

Today’s designations by the United States Department of the Treasury of three businessmen and seven businesses send a clear message that no one is above the law.

We applaud the swift actions taken today by Honduran authorities to ensure the banking system is strong. Hondurans can be confident that it is well-managed and well-protected. We look forward to our continued close cooperation with Honduras to build on the impressive macro-economic gains recently highlighted by the International Monetary Fund, and to create more economic opportunities for Hondurans. Honduras has no stronger partner than the United States.
