Venezuelan Coupist in Honduras

Tegucigalpa, Jul 9 (Prensa Latina) The presence of Venezuelan coupist Robert Carmona in Honduras was denounced by the local radio station Radio Globo and popular organizations that describe him as an accomplice of the de-facto regime.

Journalist Luis Galdames, who hosts the radio program Detras de la noticia in the aforementioned radio station, said Carmona is staying at the downtown Plaza Libertador Hotel, in the capital, with a false identity: Armando Valladares.

Carmona was seen entering the premises of the Public Ministry, at 09:10 local hour, and two hours after went the Presidential Palace, Galdames said. The movement of pacific resistance to the coup in Honduras blames Honduran attorney general’s office for being the key leaders of the military coup that overthrew President Manuel Zelaya on June 28.

Galdames added that Carmona is closely related to leaders of the US extreme right like former ambassadors Otto Reich and John Dimitri Negroponte. Some representatives of the pacific protest movement made a phone call to Prensa Latina’s offices, announcing the presence of Carmona in this capital. It adds he fled Venezuela, seeking asylum in Miami, after the unsuccessful coup perpetrated against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, in April 2002.
