Honduras files case against Brazil

October 30, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Honduras' interim government has filed a case at the United Nations' highest court accusing Brazil of meddling in internal Honduran affairs by allowing ousted President Manuel Zelaya to stay at its embassy in Tegucigalpa, the court announced.

The administration of interim President Roberto Micheletti asked the International Court of Justice to order Brazil to stop granting Zelaya refuge in its diplomatic mission.

Zelaya has been holed up at the Brazilian Embassy since sneaking back into Honduras on Sept. 21.

The army deposed him June 28 after he defied Supreme Court orders to cancel a referendum on rewriting the constitution.
