Honduras: Protest prohibited: Use of force and arbitrary detentions to suppress dissent in Honduras
The Honduran security forces used excessive force to suppress the wave of demonstrations that followed the elections on 29 November 2017. They detained hundreds of people. Several of those arrested for crimes allegedly committed during the protests face criminal proceedings and are being denied their right to due process, including by being held in pre-trial detention. This document exposes some of the methods used by the Honduran authorities to suppress demonstrations and discourage people from taking part in them. It also highlights the consequences for those deprived of their liberty of being held in pre-trial detention.
