Berta Cáceres in Honduras continues to be harassed in spite of court order

January 28, 2014

In my post of 17 January I related that there seemed to be some optimism in the case of Berta Cáceres in Honduras as the court had suspended her case (https://thoolen.wordpress.com/2014/01/17/justice-maybe-on-its-way-for-some-human-rights-defenders-in-honduras/), but the ink on the order was hardly dry when on 26 January 2014, she was again temporarily detained. Members of the criminal investigation unit showed her an order for her capture [the authorities had not communicated any counter-order to them, they stated]. According to sources of Front Line, only her knowledge of the law lead to her release an hour later. Judicial harassment of the first order.
