JUSTICE FOR BERTA CÁCERES

Peoples Dispatch joined the call to stand in solidarity with the family of Berta Cáceres and COPINH, to demand justice and raise awareness about what has happened with the case

After first round of convictions, victims continue their demand that the people and structures who financed the assassination be prosecuted and punished

The victims have denounced nationally and internationally the irregularities committed by the courts and the Attorney General in Honduras throughout this trial and last month their legal representation was even excluded from the proceedings

The trial has continued for the past 6 days without the presence of Berta Cáceres’ family and their legal team. The team had earlier challenged the credibility of the judges hearing the case

COPINH and the victim’s legal team denounced that the appeals court has not resolved all of the petitions filed by the legal team, specifically the one requesting the disqualification of the judges hearing the case

The trial which was scheduled to start on September 17 has been postponed until the court resolves the petition presented by the family and COPINH’s legal team
