Honduran President José Manuel Zelaya Rosales of the Liberal Party, was forced from power in a coup d’état on 28 June 2009. Amnesty International has documented widespread human rights violations against civilians by both police and military officials, including excessive use of force, unlawful killings, torture and other ill treatment, arbitrary arrest and harassment and intimidation of opponents to the coup. In this document Amnesty International is calling on the new government to ensure truth, justice and reparation for the human rights violations committed during the political crisis.
