Salvadoran authorities have ordered the arrest of Luis Arturo Ventura, a judge implicated in this country's most publicized drug-corruption scandal, according to a fellow judge who issued the warrant. Ventura is accused of malfeasance for dismissing charges against four alleged drug traffickers whom police caught on a deserted airstrip with $14-million worth of cocaine three years ago. The case has become a lightning rod for demands that El Salvador clean up its notoriously corrupt courts.
