Honduras State Employees Forced to Attend Santos Campaign Rally

30-11-2009 07:55

"The National Front Against the Coup d'Etat has called on its participants to remain indoors in a "voluntary curfew" in noncooperation with the fraudulent vote. Should any incidents of violence occur today it won't be from the Resistance, but, rather, the result of the regime's own provocateurs. National presidential candidate Carlos H.

These are the charges set against the flying Vet Maurice Kirk - an inncocent man

29-11-2009 18:56

The following gives the unsavoury flavour of the depth of corruption. The second article goes into greater detail concerning official corruption in this case.
