Zelaya Arrest Warrants Dismissed
Via the BBC: Honduras drops arrest warrants for ousted Manuel Zelaya.
As we all may recall, Honduran President Manuel “Mel” Zelaya was invited, one fine Sunday morning, to board a plane to Costa Rica. Now, I must confess that I would very much like to go to Costa Rica, but there is a good way to be invited to Costa Rica, and a bad way. The problem in the Zelaya case is that said invitation was delivered by the military while Mel was still in his jammies.
At any rate, after many adventures, Mel found himself out of a job and is currently residing in the Dominican Republic and would like to return home and was a combo vacation invite and Trumpian “you’re fired.”
The piece notes that despite having three arrest warrants cancelled, he still faces corruption charges.
