The PMOP spokesman, José Antonio Cuello, reported that 802 gang members deprived of liberty were transferred from the "El Pozo" prison in Santa Bárbara (northwest) to the "La Tolva" penal center in Morocelí (east).

Likewise, it was learned that some 826 prisoners from “La Tolva” were relocated to “El Pozo”, thus completing the 1,628 incarcerated.

Through the social network Twitter, the Honduran Minister of Defense, José Manuel Zelaya, highlighted: "The Military Police carry out the transfer of prisoners. Without rest, dismantling the schools of organized crime and retaking control and security of the penal centers".

According to the authorities, the operations were carried out with respect for the human rights of persons deprived of their liberty, as well as with the presence and supervision of high command to verify that the actions were carried out in compliance with the law.

Promoted by the Government of Xiomara Castro, the operation is part of the Faith and Hope program, with the purpose of improving security in the Central American country, where, in addition, the construction of a maximum security prison is planned in the Islas del Cisne, among other actions.

The measures were preceded by the events of June 20, when at least 41 women died in a riot at the Women's Center for Social Adaptation (Cefas), near Tegucigalpa (capital).
