In Honduras JOH Attacks Free Press Like UN Guterres His Supporter No Answers on Chapo $

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon, Thread Video
Honduras - The Source - The Root - etc

SDNY / UN GATE, March 20  – Tony Hernandez, the brother of Honduras' president Juan Orlando Hernandez, after a jury trial was found guilty just after noon on October 18 on all four counts of guns and drug running and false statements.

Inner City Press which has lived tweeted the whole trial leading to strange replies from Juan Orlando Hernandez himself who tweeted a photo of a gun with the name Trump on it, has asked questions. And on Inner City Press' many questions on Honduras, the UN of Antonio Guterres has not answered a single question, even as Guterres propped up JOH.

 Now this: "Juan Orlando Hernández published a decree instituting a state of emergency for seven days due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which imposes a curfew and revokes several articles of the Honduran constitution, including Article 72, which protects the right to free expression without censorship.  The decree also restricts the right to free mobility and the right to organize social gatherings, among others. Honduras’ law on freedom of expression, which operates under Article 72, protects journalists’ right to work without “any persecution,” even under martial law." Not any more. JOH is like Guterres - a censor.

  UNSG Guterres has refused to answer Inner City Press' questions about his meeting(s) with JOH, and about a four person panel he sent to the country to support JOH.

  Inner City Press even before the verdict as the UN Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming in writing, "October 18-1: On Honduras on which you have refused to answer or respond to Inner City Press' as it covers in SDNY the US v Tony Hernandez trial which continues jury deliberations today and has asked you why SG Guterres did not even bring up corruption and drug trafficking when he met president Juan Orlando Hernandez, 1) please immediately describe activities of the UN system and resident coordinator / representative on JOH's current terms and 2) what now are Guterres' belated comments and actions if any on that last night JOH's National Party majority in the Honduran parliament passed a law making itslef immune, and that Honduran police dispersed hundreds of demonstrators with tear gas on Wednesday in Tegucigalpa who demanded the resignation of President Juan Orlando Hernandez, suspected by the American courts of collaborating with the drug traffickers?"

  No answer all all.

 The trial began with a bang on October 2 with the charge that already life imprisoned El Chapo Guzman gave the defendant $1 million for this brother, the president. On October 7, sworn witness Alex Ardon described the meeting, with both El Chapo and Tony Hernandez present and the cash in plastic bags, see thread and see below.

The trial is before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel and Inner City Press is live tweeting it. See also Patreon here

 And here the post arrest statement as so far put in to the jury, as uploaded to YouTube by Inner City Press, here. The case is US v. Diaz Morales, 15-cr-00379 (Castel).
