General Romeo Vasquez Velasquez, Chief of the Joint Staff
Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The president of the Supreme Court (CSJ), Jorge Rivera Aviles, issued a final dismissal, freeing of criminal responsibility the Joint Chiefs of Armed Forces of Honduras (FFAA) accused of abuse of power because of the alleged illegal extradition of former president Manuel Zelaya.
One of the attorneys for the generals, Juan Carlos Sanchez, said the favorable ruling was because in the evidence presented by the defense, the military opted to remove Zelaya out of the country because before, during and after June 28 there were about 950 armed foreigners in the country, representing a danger to the internal security of Honduras.
He also said that "the ruling was determined based on necessity that existed to extradite Mr Manuel Zelaya Rosales of the country because there was sufficient evidence that there could have been a bloody event."

These men are heroes of the nationwide effort that began prior to June 28, 2009 to save our democracy from the onslaught by socialist henchman and neighborhood thug, Hugo Chavez.
