When it rains, it pours:
First, Protesters Block Roads, Clash With Police in Honduras.
Now, Hundreds of members of the Honduran riot police force known as Cobras refused to carry out orders to enforce a night-time curfew on Monday.
About 200 Cobras gathered at the police headquarters and announced they were no longer willing to confront protesters, arguing that it amounted to “taking sides” in the political battle between Mr Nasralla and President Hernández.
“We are rebelling. We call on all the police nationally to act with their conscience,” one masked officer told Reuters news agency.
There’s a recount in the works.
Meanwhile, Eric Conn got nabbed. Who? Honduran authorities have captured a fugitive US lawyer who was on America’s most wanted list.
Eric Conn fled from the US six months ago after pleading guilty to stealing $600m (£450m) by filing bogus disability claims.
Hissy fit n foreign press about electronic fail n Honduras. Baloney. All sides signed a doc that final results req reviewng physical “actas”. N all had reps at the tables and copies of signed “actas.”
Nasralla offered path 2 challenge. Refuses. For press doesn’t mention this.
