Ex-Honduran President Zelaya Will Return Between May 27 To May 29

Former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya will return to Honduras between May 27 and 29.

His legal advisor, Rasel Tome said Zelaya will arrive at Toncontin International airport in the capital, where thousands of Hondurans will gather to welcome him in a reception organised by the National Popular Resistance Front (FNRP).

Zelaya is returning a few days before the 41st Assembly of the Organisation of American States (OAS) in El Salvador, which begins June 5.

While two trials on corruption charges against Zelaya were annulled, the FNRP insists that the government is responsible for his personal safety once in Honduras, where his wife recently denounced a conspiracy to murder him, Tome said.

Zelaya has been living in the Dominican Republic for more than a year after Honduran soldiers kidnapped him and sent him to Costa Rica on June 28, 2009.

Honduras was expelled from the OAS, which set the safe return of the former Honduran president as a condition for re-entry, sources said.
