What a nut job – Boy our President can really pick them can’t he. First Chavez and now Zeleya ………
They’re torturing me, Honduras’ Manuel Zelaya claims –
Honduras’ fallen leader told The Miami Herald he is being subjected to mind-altering gas and radiation — and that `Israeli mercenaries’ are planning to assassinate him.
TEGUCIGALPA — It’s been 89 days since Manuel Zelaya was booted from power. He’s sleeping on chairs, and he claims his throat is sore from toxic gases and “Israeli mercenaries” are torturing him with high-frequency radiation.
“We are being threatened with death,” he said in an interview with The Miami Herald, adding that mercenaries were likely to storm the embassy where he has been holed up since Monday and assassinate him.
Zelaya said he is being subjected to toxic gases and radiation that alter his physical and mental state.
Israeli government sources in Miami said they could not confirm the presence of any “Israelis mercenaries” in Honduras.
Micheletti took Zelaya’s place after the military, executing a Supreme Court arrest warrant, burst into Zelaya’s house and forced him into exile. The country’s military, congress, Supreme Court and economic leaders have backed the ouster, arguing that Zelaya was bent on conducting an illegal plebiscite that they feared would ultimately lead to his ceasing power unconstitutionally and naming himself President for life.
“The embassy has been turned into a bunker for Zelaya,” Assistant Foreign Minister Martha Lorena Alvarado de Casco told The Herald. “He’s turned it into his headquarters, and he is using it to call for insurrection.”
(Brazil has severed diplomatic ties with Honduras, so the “former” Brazilan Embassy (you can’t have an Embassy in Country you don’t have diplomatic relations with), has no special protections under international law. The former Brazilian Embassy is just anotherr office building now. As Zeleya was removed from office legally, his calls for insurrection are acts of treason and the Honduran Government would be within the law to arrest Zeleya for treason …… The Honduran Government obviously recognizes the fact that Zelaya is just as “bonkers” as Quadiffi of Libya …… and has todate refrained from taking Zeleya into custody).
New Honduran elections had been scheduled for this November (2009) and are still scheduled to proceed. Zeleya was prohibited by the Honduran Constitution for running for re-election. Zelaya was replaced by his party’s second in command – current President Roberto Micheletti. Presdient Micheletti is also prohibited from running for re-election because the Honduran Constitution prohibits running for a second Presidential term.
