Zelaya rejects amnesty to coup perpetrators

Honduras: Honduran constitutional President Manuel Zelaya reiterated on Monday that he rejects the amnesty law the National Congress is trying to approve this week to favour those involved in the coup d’etat.

“The coup will not remain unpunished or concealed,” the President said, asserting that people do not accept the idea of forgetting the violations of human rights, illegal detentions, assassinations and other crimes against humanity that have been committed during the coup regime.

He criticized the President that came out of the spurious elections of November 29, Porfirio Lobo, for boosting pardon to those responsible for the coup.

Lobo said the measure “would please the international community” and “bring peace to Honduras,” an opinion rejected by the National Front against the Coup d’Etat which include several social organizations.

Answering to a request by Lobo and the Head of the de facto regime Roberto Micheletti, the Parliament will begin to debate on Tuesday the bill that would benefit those responsible for the coup, including the high-ranking military officers.

Different popular sectors and progressive parties will perform demonstrations, starting on Monday, in front of the Congress headquarters, rejecting the amnesty to oppressors.
