Urgent Action: PRISONERS OF CONSCIENCE FACE TRIAL (Honduras: UA 03.22)January 14, 2022
Eight members of the Municipal Committee for the Defense of Common and Public Assets (CMDBCP), prisoners of conscience, continue in pre-trial detention in Yoro (North Honduras) after more than 28 months. Their arbitrary detention is solely for standing up in defence of protected water sources in danger by a mining project. The trial against the eight defenders restarted on January 13, 2022. We urge authorities to drop the charges against the eight human rights defenders and release them immediately and unconditionally.
