PBI before the UN Human Rights Council

In 2022, there are four key moments for the promotion and guarantees of transitional justice (in Honduras): the selection of the Supreme Court of Justice; the installation of the Commission against Impunity; the issuance of the resolution on “Fraud on Gualcarque” where the legal deadline has expired; and progress has been made in the agreement signed this February between the peasantry and the State for the resolution of the Bajo Aguan conflict.

On September 16, Kim-Mai Vu highlighted at the United Nations in Geneva during the Interactive Dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence:

In Honduras, the 2009 coup led to an increase in human rights violations and serious attacks against defenders. We consider four key moments for the promotion and guarantees of transitional justice: the selection of the Supreme Court of Justice, the installation of a Commission against Impunity; the issuance of the resolution on “Fraud on the Gualcarque” where the term stipulated by law has expired, and the guarantee of progress in the agreement signed this February between organizations Peasant Women and the State in the Resolution of the Bajo Aguan Conflict.
