Despite what new Honduran authorities say, what happened yesterday was a coup.
It’s obvious. President Zelaya was quiet sleeping at home, soldiers came with an alleged court order, and within minutes he is flying exiled to Costa Rica.
He didn’t received the due process. There is no law stating a procedure like this to defenestrate a president. This expulsion was illegal. Period.
It is paradoxical that those flying the flag of the law against Zelaya now make use of illegality to expel him.
I correct, this is not a coup. If Zelaya tries to return home he will be captured and tried for treason. My best wishes for the constitutional government of Roberto Micheletti.
