Event description

Description

Adán Guillermo López Lone (AJD, Honduras) - In the wake of the June 2009 coup d'état the Honduran Supreme Court supported the breaking up of the country's constitutional order. There were members of the judiciary, however, who condemned the Coup and joined the popular protests. This led to disciplinary processes against several judges and magistrates, and resulted in them being relieved of their judicial responsibilities. Adán Guillermo is one of four judges who were dismissed for speaking out against the coup. In October 2015 the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled that Honduras should reinstate the judges. The Honduran state are still to fully comply with the sentence. Adan's visit to Europe marks one year since the landmark ruling. Adan will talk about the human rights situation in Honduras, rule of law in Central America and issues that legal practitioners face in the region.

Speaker: Judge Adán Guillermo López Lone, Association of Judges for Democracy (AJD), Honduras
