Coup d'État in Honduras

Honduran Cartoonist Allan McDonald is Arrested and then Freed


AUTHOR:  HABLA HONDURAS

Translated by  Machetera


Honduran military burned all of his cartoons and his drawing material.  He was taken from his residence along with his infant daughter, who after 24 hours had not been allowed anything to eat and had only been given water.  They were not allowed to bring any belongings, or money, only his passport.

Allan McDonald and his daughterAllan McDonald was detained along with his 17 month old daughter, Abril, at 3 a.m.  He was later freed and found safe and well at home, although under the surveillance of authorities.

Allan McDonald is a cartoonist who had shown his support for the opinion poll promoted by the government of Manuel Zelaya Rosales, through his cartoons published in the Diario el Heraldo de Honduras, Times and Rebelion.org.

Allan communicated with Verenice from a hotel where he found himself detained along with the Venezuelan consul and two female journalists from Spain and Chile, following the coup d'etat where a group of soldiers from the Honduran Armed Forces arrived at his house in Santa Lucia, some eight kilometers outside the capital city of Tegucigalpa.  The house was ransacked.  Later, all of his drawings and art materials were burned.  He was taken from his house along with his infant daughter, who after almost 24 hours had not eaten and had only been given water.  They were not allowed to bring any belongings or money, only his passport.

This Monday, June 29, they were freed and he is at home again, together with his daughter Abril, both safe and sound.  He says that international pressure, from Rebelion.org and the Catholic church of Spain, were decisive in his liberation.  He was told that he had been arrested due to the curfew, but did not know the whereabouts of the other journalists in detention with him.
