Fast Facts You Need To Know
President Saca was the subject of widespread allegations of corruption. A secret cable from the American Embassy in San Salvador, made public by Wikileaks, cites lawmakers from Saca’s own ARENA party and business figures as raising specific concerns about Saca abusing the power of the presidency for his own personal gain. Such corruption “went beyond the pale” even by Salvadoran standards. According to the cable: “While the Salvadoran public may be inured to self-serving behavior by politicians, many in ARENA believe that the brazen manner in which Saca and his people are widely perceived to have used their positions for personal enrichment went beyond the pale. ARENA deputy (and son of controversial ARENA founder) Roberto d’Aubuisson (protect) told Poloff that Saca “deliberately ignored” his Public Works Minister’s government contract kickbacks scheme, even after the case was revealed in the press. Furthermore, considerable evidence exists, including from U.S. business sources, that the Saca administration pushed laws and selectively enforced regulations with the specific intent to benefit Saca’s family business interests.”
On September 12, 2018, Saca received a 10 year prison sentence after he pled guilty to embezzlement and money laundering charges involving more than $300 million of public funds. On September 18, 2019, Saca received two more years in prison after pleading guilty to attempting to bribe a court employee with around $10,000 in exchange for information concerning a charge brought against him. At the time of his second conviction, Saca was already serving his 10-year prison sentence The El Salvador Supreme Court upheld Saca’s 10-year prison sentence on December 26, 2019, and also ordered him to return some $260 million that he embezzled. The Supreme Court also upheld convictions against three former officials from Saca’s inner circle and three his former presidential employees, and also ordered them to return stolen money as well. Saca’s six co-defendants had received prison sentences ranging from 3 to 16 years.
In the night of Saturday, October 29, 2016, the ex-president Elías Antonio Saca, was captured on alleged corruption charges by the police; according to the Prosecutor, Saca has been arrested for alleged illicit enrichment, unlawful association, and money laundering. Julio Rank (ex-secretary of communications), Cesar Funes (ex-secretary of the youth), and four other former officials in his government were also arrested. Prosecutor has accused him and the others for diverting from the public coffers a total of $246 million.
Former President Saca was a candidate in the February 2, 2014 elections. Though he leans politically to the right, Saca and the deputies aligned with him have often allied with the FMLN in the National Assembly to vote against ARENA, offering Saca a degree of political influence. He was running as part of a coalition of small parties called UNIDAD, which included groups from both the center-left and center-right, but was not expected to win. In fact, he lost.
The U.S. Embassy cable also made mention of Saca’s multimillion-dollar mansion constructed during his presidency: “Saca also accumulated conspicuous assets – including a mansion in San Salvador and large landholdings in La Union that do not square with the investments and income he had prior to assuming the presidency.”
In the midst of a political campaign, the former President was sued on October 21, 2013 for corruption and money laundering. On March 7, 2016, the El Salvador Supreme Court ordered Saca to stand trial for illegal enrichment. In September 12, 2018, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison by a tribunal.
The ARENA party expelled Saca in December 2009 for his suspected involvement in getting certain ARENA legislators to defect to a new party, the Grand Alliance for National Unity, in cooperation with the ruling FMLN government.
Another classified U.S. Embassy cable reported that ARENA expelled Saca, “charging that he had misspent $219 million of unaccounted-for government funds, and citing improprieties in the 2008-2009 electoral process, claiming Saca had pressured mayors to vote for specified candidates under penalty of being excluded as ARENA municipal candidates.” The ARENA leadership, according to the cable, “said Saca improperly transferred government funds to bolster his own image, despite funding shortages for public health and safety. Saca defended himself in a December 13 telephone interview with center-left online newspaper El Faro . . . . He also claimed the funding transfer was authorized by law.”
President Saca initiated the “Solidarian Network plan” on October 2005 with international aid from European countries such as Spain. This plan was aimed at communities considered below the poverty line. A map of poor areas was developed, and financial aid in the amount of $15 to $20 per month per family was to be distributed in the designation areas. The plan was initiated in the Balsam Range municipalities (Cordillera del Balsamo), such as Jicalapa, in La Libertad department.
On March 21, 2004, Saca was elected President of El Salvador, and on June 1, 2004 succeeded President Francisco Flores. Both Saca and Flores are members of the conservative Nationalist Republican Alliance party, generally known by its Spanish-language acronym ARENA. Like Flores, Saca was part of ARENA’s moderate wing.
In August 2004, President of the Republic of China Chen Shui-bian awarded Saca the Order of Brilliant Jade with Grand Cordon.
With his embracing of the free-market and pro-United States policies like those pursued by Flores, Saca was the clear favorite of the United States government in the 2004 presidential election. Saca was one of a few leaders in Latin America to send troops to Iraq, though he was the only one to maintain them on extended deployment. El Salvador’s military commitment in Iraq ended in February 2009.
Saca married Ana Ligia Mixco Sol de Saca on August 11, 1989. The couple have three children, Gerardo Antonio, Jose Alejandro and Christian Eduardo.
