Former Honduran president Zelaya denounces that he is being pursued on motorcycles and vehicles

The ex-president of Honduras Manuel Zelaya, overthrown on June 28, 2009, denounced on Monday that alleged killers chase him on two motorcycles and two vehicles.

"Assassinated assassins, they persecute me with marked vigilance, they drive on 2 motorcycles and 2 vehicles that change them constantly," said Zelaya on the social network Twitter.

The message adds: "And yes, it is true that I am publishing a book where I identify high-ranking military officers who # 28J assaulted my house and kidnapped me to Costa Rica."

Zelaya did not specify details about the alleged assassins who persecute him, nor if he has denounced those actions before the Public Ministry or human rights organizations.

The ex-governor published on June 28, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of his overthrow, when he promoted constitutional reforms that the law did not allow, a book of less than 100 pages in which chronologically tells what happened since the coup until his return to the country, in May 2011.

In the book, "El Golpe 28J", Zelaya points out names of officers of the Armed Forces involved in his abrupt departure from power and the country.

Zelaya, who assumed the presidency of Honduras on January 27, 2006 for a period of four years, under the banner of the conservative Liberal Party, was deposed when he had seven months to finish his term.

His overthrow shattered the Liberal Party, which was relegated in the Honduran Parliament to second opposition force since the 2013 general elections.

In addition, in 2011, the same year that Zelaya returned to his country, after living for more than a year in the Dominican Republic, the Freedom and Refoundation (Free) Party emerged, of which he is its general coordinator.

Zelaya continues to promote a National Constituent Assembly and accuses the current president of Honduras, Juan Orlando Hernández, of having been re-elected in the general elections of November 2017 through a "fraud".

It also demands the exiting of the power of Juan Orlando Hernández, to whom he asks him to resign, as well as promoting "insurrectional commandos" to remove him from power.
