The Strategic Investment of Honduras' former director bought seven mobile hospitals in Turkey for US$48 million dollars.
Honduras' Public Prosecutors Office (MPH) on Monday filed a detention order against two former executives of a state-managed company under corruption charges after the purchase of overpriced medical supplies on the early pandemic.
According to the accusation, Bogran bought seven mobile hospitals in Turkey for US$48 million. Two of the tents arrived in Honduras in July in poor conditions.
The supplies were intended for COVID-19 patients in the cities of San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa, the hardest hit by the pandemic. According to Invest-H, the other five mobile hospitals would arrive in late October.
Bogran and Moraes are also accused of the purchase of high-prices gloves, masks, and drugs during the pandemic. MPH reserved the identity of others implicated in the corruption case.
