Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic



About the hearing:

The objective of this hearing is to provide the IACHR with relevant information on the developing conditions surrounding the election process of a new Attorney General in Honduras. This is of vital importance due to the current situation regarding the fight against macro-corruption and historic impunity that continues to deepen within the country and that requires decisive actions to remedy the institutional weakness that faces these issues. In other words, independence and autonomy are necessary conditions for the Attorney General to overcome the human rights crisis in Honduras. For this reason, the national and international civil society calls on the IACHR to ensure a transparent and participative procedure in the coming Attorney General election.
