the OAS's double standard

Honduran Foreign Minister Carlos Lopez Contreras compared the position of the OAS in the case of former Ecuadorian president Lucio Gutiérrez, ousted in 2005, with the ouster of Manuel Zelaya.

"Gutierrez dissolved the Supreme Court and the [Ecuadoran] Congress deposed him for attempting against a power of the state. The military captured and expelled him from the country and he ended up in Brazil ... and nothing happened," he recalled.

"In the case of Honduras, where a legal succession occurred according to its Constitution, there is a big surprise."
