My understanding is that those employees of Honduras’ foreign ministry who are stationed outside of Honduras receive their salaries in dollars or euros, etc. But those foreign ministry employees who are based in Honduras receive their salaries in lempiras. Thus, Ms. Valle, who was the viceminister of foreign affairs, received her salary in lempiras. Her salary was listed at Lps 70,000 per month. While this is a very good salary by Honduran standards, I don’t consider it obscene.
