By the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH)
David Castillo Mejia, the President of DESA, the corporation building the dam Berta was organizing against when she was assassinated, has just been arrested while attempting to flee Honduras.
COPINH reports to the national and international community that moments ago David Castillo, the President of the DESA corporation and the Agua Zarca hydroelectric project, was arrested thanks to all of the work and pressure created by the solidarity and work of organizations nationally and internationally. No thanks is due to the Attorney General’s office, who have tried everything possible to cover up the truth in this case.
The Honduran state made this arrest to try to obscure the protests today for the 2nd anniversary of the assassination of our sister Berta Caceres. Nonetheless, from the start COPINH has denounced him as the general manager alongside the entire board of directors of the DESA corporation, which belongs to the Atala Zablah family.
COPINH will continue to denounce the entire murderous, criminal structure behind the assassination of our sister Berta Caceres, of which David Castillo is just one piece.
