Insulza Stresses Stubbornness of Coup Perpetrators
HAVANA, Cuba, July 4, (acn).- Jose Miguel Insulza, Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), stated that the response of the de facto regime representatives to his efforts was to hand over documents with accusations against Jose Manuel Zelaya to justify the military coup.
In statements in Tegucigalpa, he said that his interlocutors were informed about the position of the OAS, among them the Supreme Court of Justice, the Attorney General’s Office, and popular organizations, reports the Prensa Latina news agency.
Insulza, who confirmed on Friday the OAS condemnation of the Honduran military coup, arrived in Tegucigalpa to communicate the resolution adopted on Tuesday by that organization to the de facto government, which demands the reinstatement of constitutional president Jose Manuel Zelaya.
He recalled that in the early hours of Sunday, June 28, a serious rupture of constitutional order took place in that Central American nation, with the arrest of President Zelaya by the military and his forcible transfer abroad.
The rupture continues, and those who did this have no intention of restoring constitutional order for the moment, he stated, adding that there’s no sign that the situation will change over the next 48 hours.
Since this situation persists, he expressed that the OAS General Assembly can adopt measures against the member state, like its suspension from the organization, which means its exclusion from all of the entity’s activities.
When asked about the announced return of Zelaya to that country this weekend, he avoided expressing any opinion, since he said it’s a personal decision.
