Presidenet Zelaya returns to Honduras on Thursday
Caracas, Venezuela, 29 June 2009. Honduran President Manuel Zelaya announced his return to Honduras on Thursday. He would be accompanied by OAS General Secretary and probably some other Latin American leaders.
The overthrow of President Zelaya has been condemned by regional and international leaders. Central America leaders united to isolate the plotters by commercial and diplomatic means. Common boundaries with Honduras have been closed.
The tyranny of Roberto Micheletti has not been granted international recognition.Thus, Micheletti remains a fictional president. Not a single government has recognised his government. In addition, current US administration has declared the recent removal of Zelaya as illegal. Latin American countries have recalled their Ambassadors to Tegucigalpa. And Venezuela is to stop supplying oil to Honduras too.
At the domestic front, plotters have also confronted civil disobedience and resistance with illegal repression. International coverage was prevented to no avail. The detention of Telesur and AP journalists followed prompt condemnation. It is increasingly difficult for Micheletti and plotters to remain grasping power.
President Zelaya will address both OAS and UN General Assembly tomorrow. Condemnation of his illegal removal and the restitution of Democracy in Hondura have turned into a point of honour for Latin American and Caribbean countries.
