Welcome back to another week of Central American news!
Here’s a round-up of this week:
In Nicaragua, activists work in secret while human rights groups exiled in Costa Rica try to help them. In Honduras, an expensive hydroelectric project has been halted due to harassment of its employees and Panama will start yet another trial on a big corruption case. Belize is looking to boost its banana industry. Prominent Guatemalan figures officially announced their campaign for presidency while Salvadorans hold their breath for this Sunday’s first round of presidential elections. The U.S. is “tracking” three caravans of Central American migrants crossing Mexico and implemented a new asylum policy, informally called “Remain in Mexico.”
