Honduras de facto govt. briefly reintroduces curfew
07:34 27/09/2009 MEXICO CITY, September 27 (RIA Novosti) - Honduras's de facto government led by Roberto Micheletti, parliamentary speaker turned interim leader, briefly reintroduced curfew in the country in response to ousted leader Manuel Zelaya's calls for civil disobedience actions.
"We have decided to reintroduce curfew to ensure the country is quiet," the government said on national television. "Curfew is introduced on September 27 from 0:00 to 6:00 Sunday."
The de facto government on Thursday suspended a curfew put in place earlier after Zelaya returned to the country and took refuge in the Brazilian embassy.
The Micheletti-led government recently cut communication lines, electricity and water supply to the embassy premises.
Zelaya was bundled out of the country on June 28 by the military, acting on instructions from the Supreme Court and parliament, for his efforts to seek an unconstitutional second presidential term. He was flown to Costa Rica. The de facto Honduran leadership has not been recognized internationally.
