The Honduran authorities transferred 1,628 prisoners classified as highly dangerous to two maximum security prisons. The operation is part of the Faith and Hope program, promoted by the Government of Xiomara Castro after at least 41 women died on June 20 in a riot at the Women's Center for Social Adaptation (Cefas).

Among the inmates transferred there are 802 members of the Barrio 18 gang who were mobilized to the La Tolva detention center in Morocelí, in the eastern part of the country. In the same operation, 826 Mara Salvatrucha gang members were mobilized from La Tolva to the prison known as El Pozo in Santa Bárbara.

The operation was carried out within the framework of a series of measures imposed by the government of Xiomara Castro to toughen the security of the country. Among other actions, the construction of a maximum security prison is planned in the Islas del Cisne.
