The Organization of American States on Monday established an ambitious new corruption-fighting commission in Honduras aimed at replicating the success of a similar, UN-backed body in Guatemala that brought down that country's government. The Support Mission Against Corruption and Impunity in Honduras, known by its Spanish initials MACCIH, will target graft and organized crime through a corps of judges, prosecutors and police officers. Honduras ranks 112th out of 168 countries on a global corruption index put out by Transparency International, a watchdog.
