Ex-Salvadoran legislator charged with dealing with gangs

May 7, 2021

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) — A former legislator and presidential candidate apparently fled to Honduras Friday after he was charged with making a deal with street gangs to support his 2014 presidential campaign.

Norman Quijano left El Salvador several hours before he was to lose the immunity from prosecution he enjoyed as a member of congress. A judge issued an arrest warrant for him.

Quijano, of the conservative ARENA party, tweeted that he was in Honduras to attend to a “family matter.”

One of his lawyers said he had gone their to get vaccinated against COVID-19. That story seemed odd, given that Honduras doesn’t have enough shots for its own population.
