Supreme Court of Justice Meets

Under tight security, all 15 judges of the CSJ met to hear a request brought by the National Congress to issue a legal opinion on whether or not to return Manuel Zelaya to the presidency.

The session was scheduled for 10:00 am, but started an hour late because the judges received a visit from Pastor Evelio Reyes.

After hours of deliberation, the judges decided to nominate a special committee of five judges for this task, said Danilo Izaguirre, spokesman for the CSJ. The committee is composed of Jorge Alberto Rivera, who will preside; Rosa de Lourdes Paz, Jacobo Antonio Calix, Carlos David Calix and Oscar Fernando Chinchilla.

These senior judges will be responsible for assessing the request of Congress and write a draft opinion to be offered for consideration by all of the judges of the CSJ. This report will be submitted next Wednesday to the judges for approval, and will then be forwarded to the National Congress.

    Why on such a HUGE legal issue would not ALL 15 judges decide this case??

    But the Constitution is very clear, z’liar violated the Constitution of Honduras, and thus under the articles of the Constitution lost his presidency….. end of debate!

    Stay STRONG Honduras….. only 17 more days until the elections of a free Honduras………

    I sincerely hope that these Justices remember their duty toward Honduras and actually do justice, and call for a rotund No to the possibility of Zelaya getting back in the presidency, we all know that they must have a plan in place and ready to implement if he manages to get back in.

    And just as easily as before he broke the trust of the voters when he changed ideologies on them, he will break any promise made that guarrantees that he would not stay in power indefinitelly, they will find a “Legal” reason as to why to postpone the passing of the batton.

    And, from what I hear, one more charge should be considered against Zelaya, that as of yesterday he became a vindictive “Wife Beater” and that Xiomara ended up in the Military Hospital, recuperating form an extremmely violent bitting given to her by the already known to be coward, Mel Zelaya.

    Maybe it is something worth looking into.
