Honduran President Roberto Suazo Cordova held emergency meetings with his Cabinet and the head of the armed forces in the face of a constitutional conflict between Congress and the Supreme Court. A legislative commission, investigating reports of corruption in the judicial system, told Congress that it has found 14 cases of corruption on the part of five of the nine Supreme Court judges and is considering removing them from office. Suazo Cordova, who urged Hondurans to remain calm, charged that Congress has committed "gross acts of violation" of the constitution.
