On April 22, 1975, General Juan Alberto Melgar Castro took power in an overthrow of the government in Honduras. His predecessor was implicated in a bribery scandal with the United Fruit Company, a US corporation. Castro was a graduate of the US School of the Americas, which has educated a number of less than stellar pupils, including Manual Noriega. Castro was in turn overthrown by the Honduran military in 1979.
