Honduran prosecutors have charged three military chiefs with abuse of power in connection with the ousting and exile of President Manuel Zelaya last June.
The Supreme Court will now decide whether to start a case against them.
Mr Zelaya was removed from office amid a row with the courts, Congress and the military over his plans to look at rewriting the constitution.
He was flown out of the country but returned in secret last September and remains holed up in Brazil’s embassy.
