Punishment for Perpetrators of Crimes against Humanity in Hond

Tegucigalpa,  (Prensa Latina) Berta Oliva, General Coordinator of the Committee of Relatives of the Disappeared in Honduras (COFADEH), demanded punishment for those who committed crimes against humanity in Honduras.

Oliva said that the lack of punishment to those who committed crimes against humanity is strengthening impunity remains the Hondurans divided.

Oliva’s statements on Friday came a day after she presented the final report of the Commission of Truth and Reconciliation Commission (CRV).

“I believe that forgiveness comes after knowing what happened, of knowing the facts and truth, open trials, because if they are not prosecuted and punished those who committed crimes against humanity and against the country we are strengthening what we have in this clash: impunity”, she affirmed.

She added considedred that a National Constituent Assembly would assess these institutions to see if it works or not, which otherwise would be closed.
