Honduras Countering Transnational Crime

In July 2012, NCSC completed an 18-month Court Management Program in Honduras. The Program was funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs. The program sought to improve the prosecution and adjudication of transnational crimes, including narco-trafficking, illicit trade and related offenses. NCSC’s work resulted in broad support and training to utilize a fast-tracking system to process complex transnational crime cases.

Although the project has come to completion, NCSC work in the region continues. Through a memorandum of understanding, NCSC is entering into agreement with the Consejo Judicial Centroamericano (Judicial Council of Central America) to help the institution become a center of excellence in judicial administration and to advise the Supreme Courts of member countries concerning management improvements. NCSC remains actively engaged with Central American counterparts to strengthen justice systems and improve services to citizens.
