Honduras Makes a Complaint to UN About Brazil

Honduras has presented a formal complaint to the United Nations about Brazil.

Julio Rendon, the Honduran representative before the UN has presented a complaint about Brazil. 

The complaint lists the violations of Brazil by allowing the continued presence of Manuel Zelaya, who is using their embassy to call for unrest in the country. 

The complaint says that they are allowing him to call for interference in daily life and in elections that are scheduled for November 29. 

Brazil has commented that the UN will not receive the complaint.  However, they should not be so sure of themselves that the complaint will not be heard.  The complaint should be heard, because regardless of whether the government is actually recognized or not the country of Brazil still has to live by their obligations under the UN rules if they are going to allow Zelaya in their embassy.  Why? Because the UN has a duty to protect the citizens of Honduras and has the duty to make sure that embassies do not violate charters if they are in another country regardless of the status of the country where they are located. 

If Brazil does not recognize Honduras my question is why do they still have an embassy in Honduras? Shouldn´t they have closed their embassy and left for Brazil? If they are going to remain they still have to obey the law.  They should also remind themselves if the complaint isn´t heard that November 29 is a month away and January isn´t so far away either and that government can present a formal complaint against them before the UN and the OAS.  Not to mention that individual citizens can also launch a formal complaint against them.

I agree with you. Honduras should simply have severed relations with Brazil, sent their staff packing and either thrown Zelaya out of the country again or in jail - and they should have done this some time ago...

Tambopaxi, supposedly Brazil cut relations with Honduras however, according to international law things are not that easy in that the embassy cannot be touched as it has diplomatic immunity and can only be removed by the international court, which is what Honduras is requesting. If they grant that request Zelaya is in big doo doo.

The Interim Government did about all it could, within the constraints of world diplomatic laws, to make the punk in Brazil and Zelaya pay a high price for their brazeness.
