The corruption-related investigations will also cover non-governmental organizations used by political parties.
On Sunday, the Honduran Parliament President Luis Redondo announced the appointment of "a special commission to immediately investigate the former heads of the Public Ministry and their participation by action or omission in organized crime structures."
The corruption-related investigations will cover the former State Attorney General and the former Deputy Attorney General and non-governmental organizations used by political parties, for the receipt and laundering of assets.
Although the commission will investigate all former heads of the Public Ministry who have held office since the 1990s, analysts believe that the investigations will be focused on Oscar Chinchilla and Daniel Sibrian, who ended their term on August 31.
On Monday, Chinchilla, who held office for 10 years, traveled to Nicaragua ostensibly to take office as a member of the Central American Justice Court.
