Investigation on Murder of Union Leader Demanded in Honduras

TEGUCIGALPA -  Union leaders demanded that the Honduran government open an investigation into the murder of Juana Suyapa Bustillo, president of the union of social security workers.

Suyapa Bustillo, 49, was murdered this week-end by a gunman who shot her three times after she parked her car in El Roble neighborhood to buy food.

Israel Salinas, secretary general of the Unitary Federation of Honduran Workers, said he hopes a deep investigation can be conducted and that those responsible for this crime be arrested.

The victimÔ�Ís co-workers denounced that she had received several death threats via cell phone.

This is the third murder of a member of the social workers union in the current year, after Vanesa Yaneth Zepeda, killed on Feb 3 and Lenin Augusto Guevara, killed on July 17.

According to the leaders of the Unitary Federation of Honduran Workers, the murder was similar to others carried out against members of the National People's Resistance Front and of other social organizations after the coup in June 2009.
