Supporters of Manuela Zelaya, the deposed Honduran president, say they continue to be harassed by national security forces even though his term of office has ended.

Some even claim police have opened fire on opposition protests while journalists allege they have been threatened with years in prison for questioning the country’s constitution. 

The Inter-American Commission for Human Rights believes the army and police have both used excessive force, even torturing and sexual abusing some of the thousands who have been detained since June 2009.
