US Congresspeople Condemn Human Rights Violations, Call For Accountability

Nine US Congresspeople have urged US Government Officials, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to put pressure on President Porfirio Lobo to alleviate the human rights crisis in Honduras. Their remarks appear in a letter addressed to Secretary of State Clinton detailing recent attacks on activists and asking that the US Government make the curtailment of human rights violations and pursuit of accountability for the perpetrators a pre-condition for normalized relations with the new Honduran Government.
