NEW YORK (Sputnik) — The son of the former President of Honduras Porfirio Lobo pleaded guilty in Manhattan Federal Court to conspiring to import cocaine into the United States, US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara said in a statement.

"Fabio Lobo has now admitted in court that he conspired to import thousands of kilograms of cocaine into the United States," Bharara said Monday.

Lobo, 44, agreed to assist Mexican drug traffickers, who were in fact disguised sources of the US Drug Enforcement Administration, to import numerous tons of cocaine to the United States through Honduras, according to court documents.

Moreover, Lobo agreed to travel to Haiti for the purpose of receiving payment for the proceeds of the cocaine transaction, where he was placed under arrest in May 2015.

Lobo pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to import five more kilograms of cocaine among other charges. The son of the former president is facing life in prison and will be sentenced on September 15, 2016.
