Honduras – Murders of a lawyer who defended landless peasants and a special prosecutor for human rights (September 22 and 24, 2012)
France condemns the murders of Manuel Eduardo Díaz Mazariegos, Special Prosecutor for Human Rights, in the department of Choluteca, and of Antonio Trejo Cabrera, a lawyer who defended landless peasants in the region of Bajo Aguán, perpetrated this week in Honduras.
We expect full light to be shed on these heinous crimes, the perpetrators of which must be identified and brought to justice.
France pays tribute to the courage of human rights defenders and reaffirms the fundamental importance of their work at all levels. Ensuring their effective protection must be a priority for any government.
