Due process

All Ambassador Llorens was doing was stating the obvious… that Zelaya was never given due process. Even in developing countries like Honduras, there is exists the right of due process. You just can’t get around this “little problem”. Honduras’ Constitution is not the worst in the world, as President Arias stated once. But it does have some major flaws to it. For example, there are no provisions for impeaching a sitting President. And indeed it fails to specify who determines (under Article 239) the President has violated the law and must be removed. This is a huge omission which opens the way to chaos.
