Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Planes suspected of being linked to drug trafficking and whose crews do not complete the formalities of identification required to overfly the territory of Honduras will be shot down, announced Director of Drug Enforcement, Aristides Julian Gonzales, today.
In consensus with the Navy and Air Force, we "have reached an agreement to shoot down all the aircraft suspected of being linked to drug trafficking and which resist completing the formalities of identification to fly over our country," he said.
Prior to commencing this action, however, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must give an opinion regarding the Chicago Convention, which prohibits the shooting down of aircraft.
