Research and Projects | Mission to Support the Fight against Corruption and Impunity in Honduras (MACCIH- OAS)

At the request of the OAS, JSCA undertook the challenge of providing multilateral technical support for Honduras for the first time in its history.

In collaboration with the Mission to Support the Fight against Corruption and Impunity in Honduras (MACCIH-OAS), we developed proposals for the country’s criminal justice system.

In March 2019, we presented a full report titled “Proposals for the Honduran Justice System in the Treatment and Management of High Social Impact and Corruption Cases” in Tegucigalpa (Honduras).

The study explores the practical operation of the country’s criminal justice system, highlighting the treatment of high social impact cases and those involving corruption. It addresses aspects such as justice system transparency, institutions’ organizational models and work processes, the use of oral procedures and the hearing system, defendants’ rights, victims’ rights, and institutional independence.

It offers five recommendations in different areas for the Honduran justice system and its operators:

Recommendations for Honduran government institutions.

Recommendations for criminal justice system institution management systems.

Recommendations regarding respect for victims in the criminal justice system.

Recommendations for the regulation of criminal proceedings and litigants’ participation in hearings.

Recommendations regarding respect for the rights of defendants in terms of the right to defense, information and the use of non-custodial measures.
