Shocking New Investigation Links Berta Cáceres’s Assassination to Executives at Honduran Dam Company

1 November 2017

We look at shocking revelations released Tuesday that link the assassination of renowned Honduran indigenous environmental leader Berta Cáceres to the highest levels of the company whose hydroelectric dam project she and her indigenous Lenca community were protesting.

We speak with New York Times reporter Elisabeth Malkin, who has read the new report by a team of five international lawyers who found evidence that the plot to kill Cáceres went up to the top of the Honduran energy company behind the dam, Desarrollos Energéticos, known as ”DESA.”

The lawyers were selected by Cáceres’s daughter Bertha Zúniga and are independent of the Honduran government’s ongoing official investigation. They examined some 40,000 pages of text messages. The investigation also revealed DESA exercised control over security forces in the area, issuing directives and paying for police units’ room, board and equipment.

  7. HONDURAS: Campaigners demanded justice for environmental activist Berta Caceres on Saturday, marking two years since her murder.

    Police arrested construction company boss Robert David Castillo on Friday night as he tried to flee the country. His firm was trying to build a hydroelectric dam that Ms Caceres campaigned against.

    At a memorial protest on Saturday, people questioned why so little progress had been made, noting last year’s revelation that state agents had helped plan her murder.
