Tamayo Appeal Rejected by Supreme Court

The Supreme Court refused to accept an appeal by Padre Andres Tamayo authored by the lawyers Julio Ramos and Franklin Geovany Alonzo, representatives of the Human Rights organization CODEH (Comité para la Defensa de los Derechos Humanos en Honduras). In their defense, the lawyers indicated that Tamayo has not committed any crime. None the less, the Constitutional branch of the Supreme Court refused to admit the appeal, leaving in place the decision of the Director of Immigration, General Nelson Willy Mejia Mejia, a member of the infamous Batallion 3-16 in the 1980s, to cancel Tamayo's Honduran citizenship.

This is again a serious violation of international law, making Father Tamayo stateless.
