Honduras rebuffs top diplomat in ultimatum to restore president or face sanctions

Honduras rejects OAS appeal to restore president

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — Honduras’ Supreme Court has rejected an ultimatum to restore ousted President Manuel Zelaya to power.

Court spokesman Danilo Izaguirre says the head of the Organization of American States asked the president of the court to reinstate Zelaya, but he said no.

Izaguirre said Friday: “Now the OAS has to decide what it will do.”

The OAS has said it will suspend Honduras on Saturday unless Zelaya is reinstated.

Zelaya was seized by the military on Sunday and flown into exile.
