Honduras sharply criticized for human rights record

Monday, April 29, 2013

Honduras is one of the top countries in Latin America in terms of violations to human rights, according to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, of the Organization of American States.

Since the 2009 coup, the report states, “there have been human rights violations that have gravely affected the Honduran population.”

The assassination of human rights activists, community leaders and journalists, and the stacking of the judiciary to remove its independence, all raise serious questions about Honduran President Porfirio Lobo’s commitment to democracy.
