PostSubject: The 2009 Honduran coup    Thu Jan 27, 2011 5:10 am

The 2009 Honduran coup d'état, part of the 2009 Honduran constitutional crisis,[1][2] occurred when the military ousted President Manuel Zelaya and flew him into exile on June 28, 2009.[3] It was prompted by his attempts to schedule a non binding poll on holding a referendum about convening a constituent assembly to rewrite the constitution.[4][5] When Zelaya didn't comply with court orders to cease, the Supreme Court secretly issued a warrant for his arrest, to interview him, on June 26.[6] Two days later, Honduran soldiers entered the presidential palace and arrested Zelaya,[7] preempting the poll.[8] Instead of bringing him to trial, they put him on a military airplane which flew him to Costa Rica. Later that day, the Honduran Congress, in an extraordinary session, voted to remove Zelaya from office and appoint his constitutional successor, Speaker of Congress Roberto Micheletti, in his place.[9]
