PCM-M-016-2009 Rescinded

Radio Globo is announcing that the council of Ministers has met and rescinded the controversial decree, PCM-M-016-2009, that restricted constitutional freedoms, authorized the shutdown of Radio Globo and Cholusat Sur, and prohibited groups of 20 or more people from forming in public.

Radio Globo is currently broadcasting via the internet, where it has more listeners (a recent survey showed 800,000 connections with 100,000 of those being in Honduras) than it did in any survey of broadcast listenership. It started broadcasting at 1500 AM in Tegucigalpa as well today.

The recension of the decree means that Radio Globo and Cholusat Sur can reclaim their broadcast equipment and resume broadcasting over the air. The recension goes into effect tomorrow, after it is published in La Gaceta.

No opposition media means that no election has any legitimacy.
