Honduran Judges Fight Back
Posted on May 22, 2010
Remember that coup in Honduras last year? Well, a group of judges who were fired after making legal decisions against the widely-accepted-as-illegal coup have launched a hunger strike against their dismissal.
The judges say their dismissal was a political maneuver, claiming the high court in Honduras is defending the interests of the coup government and not justice or national interest. —JCL
