Justice Demanded for Journalists Slain in Honduras

TEGUCIGALPA – A group of journalists and defenders of free expression in the Honduran capital on Monday demanded justice for the 22 journalists who have been slain since 2014.

“We demand the investigation and trial of those responsible for the deaths of those journalists,” Wendy Funez, a representative of the Freedom of Expression Committee (C-Libre), said during a protest outside the Attorney General’s Office in Tegucigalpa.

The committee also asks for the creation of a specialized unit that will investigate “aggression against freedom of expression,” she said.

The protesters placed coffins at the entrance to the AG Office in memory of the 22 journalists who have been murdered in Honduras since 2014, according to figures provided by C-Libre.

Of the 22 cases of slain journalists, 91 percent continue to enjoy impunity, C-Libre director and former prosecutor Edy Tabora said.

The AG Office and police must investigate all the deaths and attacks against journalists, Tabora told reporters.

He also sounded the alarm about the number of attacks against journalists in recent months in Honduras, with 218 “aggressions against freedom of the press” in 2015 alone.
