Zelaya gets green light to leave Honduras
Tegucigalpa: The interim government of Honduras says it would allow ousted president Manuel Zelaya to seek asylum outside Central America.
The announcement appears to seek a compromise with Zelaya allowing him to emerge from the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa without fear of arrest on the charges of treason and abuse of power that led to his June ouster. He took refuge there after sneaking back into Honduras on September 21.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman says Honduras will grant Zelaya safe passage to any country that offers him asylum outside Central America. Milton Mateo said on Saturday the decision comes from the "very highest government level”.
Zelaya representative Rasel Tome said only that Zelaya does not plan to leave Honduras this weekend.
