TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras:Thousands of people marched against corruption in Honduras' capital Friday, delivering a letter to the local U.N. office asking for an international commission against impunity to investigate scandals involving top government officials.The protest came after President Juan Orlando Hernandez acknowledged that his election campaign received financing from businesspeople linked to a social security embezzlement scandal that investigators allege involved millions of dollars misspent on goods and services that were marked up more than 100 percent. In Honduras, a new congressional report released Friday said that businesspeople linked to the graft scandal gave $280,000 to Hernandez's National Party during his 2013 campaign.
