Support for human rights in Honduras is a continuing priority for the British Embassy to Tegucigalpa, and officials regularly call on the Honduran Ministry of Human Rights and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to discuss human rights challenges in Honduras. We urge the Honduran authorities to carry out a full investigation into the murders of Honduran environmental defenders Aly Dominguez and Jairo Bonilla.
