One of Jimmy’s four sons, Manuel Morales and Samuel Morales who is the president’s older brother and advisor were questioned in relation to suspicious payments linked to the mother of Jose Manuel’s then-girlfriend in 2013.

The attorney general said that the woman sent the registry a 90,000 quetzal ($12,000) bill made out in the name of a local restaurant for 564 breakfasts, not Christmas hampers as the budget was allocated for.
