UN experts concluded that there was no coup in Honduras
The study of the crisis in Honduras coincided with that conducted by the Library of Congress *** The study of the political crisis in Honduras was endorsed with official information received by the UN experts in the country visit last week coincided with the foreign ministers of the OAS. Washington, USA. A study by the Department of Political Affairs of the United Nations Organization (UNO) on the causes of the crisis in Honduras, concluded that the removal of President Manuel Zelaya, "was constitutional under the laws of the country," confirmed officials of that agency.
This version was officially known today by senior UN officials, which also coincides with the study prepared by the Library of Congress, which looked at by his side, the situation that generated and maintained in a political crisis in Honduras.
The document of the study by the Department of Political Affairs of the UN, with other information base (another truth) received at the last visit to Honduras, where it converged with representatives of the Organization of American States (OAS) and took advantage to meet other scenarios that were unclear.
The information on this collegial resolution of these experts, was provided to hondudiario.com, official sources and pressures inferred strategies that promote the former foreign minister Patricia Rhodes and the permanent representative of Venezuela in the Permanent Council to seek more sanctions against Honduras and require the return of former President Zelaya, which warned of "an ultimatum" to this October 15.
"These gentlemen are pressing and have invoked a special assembly to the Security Council, but there has been no response to date, they were awaiting the results of their own studies on the situation in Honduras, which has remained divided Washington "spoke the interviewee.
"The conclusion of the report clearly says that the removal of President Zelaya was constitutional. This confirms that there was no coup and strengthens the position of President Barack Obama, who never rushed to judge the situation in Honduras, as did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who rushed to condemn the Honduran people, pressed by foreign ministers the OAS, "he said.
The demands of the former chancellor Rhodes in Washington, according to experts, have been grounded in order "to the international community's sanctions against the de facto regime" and further claimed "strong" countries not to recognize the coup government under any circumstances.
"Most of the Member States of the United Nations, after meeting other settings and information now agree that they would not support any resolution of the UN General Assembly to seek penalties for Honduras," summarized by referring to this study by the Department of UN Political Affairs, which concluded that the removal of President Zelaya was constitutional, the same study agrees in most points with the study prepared by the Library of Congress.
The perfect question. Will it ever be answered?
“I may be a little biased; I don’t know all the facts” ~ Barry Hussein Obama
I recall Obama stating the day of Zelaya’s removal [or the day after the midnight escort] that it was an ‘illegal coup’. IIRC, he was in the WH oval office or some other formal looking room.
At the time, I was shocked that he used the word ‘illegal’. Very imprudent. Hilliary used the term ‘coup’, but tried to hedge or temporize the response. Put her in a difficult position as Barry had already blabbed the ‘illegal coup’ statement.
Anyone else out there recall it this way?
Hip, hip, hooray, BTW, now that the UN has figured out the truth. Probably Zelaya was too nutty acting for them to continue supporting him and his farcical allegation that his removal was unconstitutional.
So, Obama is going against his buds in the UN? What a maverick! Ooh, there goes that tinkle down my leg.
Barack acted stupidly.
That has to be galling to her.
Hee heeee heeee! (Let me be clear, zer0...)
Obama’s treatment of Honduras is part of his vast array of accomplishments for which he received the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. He can’t be apologizing for those accomplishments can he?
Now Hillary can join the ranks of the wrong, presided over by Jeremiah Wrong.
Yes, I do. He can try to pin this oh Hillary but the transcripts are out there and Rush, and maybe Beck, will be sure to use them against him on this issue.
I seem to recall that obamma and hillary did rush to judgement on this.
Our media jumped right in, calling it a coup.
great little video
“I think it’s it would uh be a terrible precident uh if we start moving backwards uh into an era in which we start seeing military coups as a means of political transition”
I don’t think it uh will be the last time we uh you will see it mr. president
So has Honduras officially declared today “Jonathan Bornstein Day”? ;)
(For those who don’t know, Jonathan Bornstein scored a late goal for the USA last night against Costa Rica, which clinched a World Cup Berth for Honduras)
