Location: 
Niles Gallery, University of Kentucky
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Heather Hodges

In 2011, the Spanish newspaper El Pais reported that Heather Hodges had expressed concern over Ecuador's National Police being corrupt, and warned that their National Police Commander, Jaime Aquilino Hurtado, might be involved in a number of illegal activities. Later that year Ecuador expelled Hodges from the country after she failed to give the Ecuadorian government a satisfactory explanation of accusations made public in the Wikileaks diplomatic cables.

Heather M. Hodges is a career United States foreign service officer, currently serving as the United States Ambassador to Moldova, and formerly the United States Ambassador to Ecuador.
