For anyone who supported the ouster of Mel Zelaya, there are a variety of legal problems, but one is insurmountable. His forced exile was unconstitutional.
ARTICULO 102.- Ningún hondureño podrá ser expatriado ni entregado por las autoridades a un Estado extranjero
No Honduran can be expatriated or handed over by authorities to a foreign state.
That, of course, is exactly what the military did. Roberto Micheletti typically refers to this violation of the constitution as an "error." Oops, sorry about that.
But Senator Jim DeMint now claims he was told the following by the Honduran Supreme Court:
DEMINT: They did it right. The only thing they know that is not specifically according to the Constitution was taking Zelaya...
VAN SUSTEREN: Putting them on the plane and throwing them out of the country.
DEMINT: They said the Constitution allows for exceptional situations, and they felt like he had presented a danger to people because of his ability to use Chavez's money to instill riots.
The coup government is therefore desperate enough to lie to a U.S. senator. There is no constitutional exception to the prohibition of exile.
