The Honduras Accompaniment Project – PROAH posted a summary of human rights issues and event in Honduras for the months of October, November and December 2013.

“The human rights landscape in the last quarter of 2013 was dominated by the elections on November 24, with an increase in killings and other attacks on political activists, particularly LIBRE. The stigmatization of human rights defenders was particularly acute in the Bajo Aguan and extended beyond the elections. There was some good news regarding criminalization of human rights defenders, with the provisional dismissal of one set of charges against the COPINH leadership, and the entry of AZUNOSA in conciliation negotiations with campesinos and the CNTC. However, there was no let-up in the killings and persecution of particular target groups including journalists, lawyers and members of the LGBTI community.

“Honduras also featured prominently in the 149th period of sessions of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), from 24 October to 8 November (see annex for more details).” (From the report)
