Honduran journalist dies after being shot

According to the non-governmental organization Committee for Free Expression (C-Libre), Edwin Andino was a contributor to the television channel La Tribuna (LTV) and died as a result of a gunshot to the face.

From C-Libre, they indicated that the murderers covered the journalist’s mouth with adhesive tape, “a pattern that has been replicated in Mexico” in crimes against journalists.

The journalist’s father, Melvin Emilio Andino, was also murdered in the criminal act, whose body was found in another area of ​​the Honduran capital.

The Association of Journalists of Honduras also issued a note of mourning in which it regrets the fact against the communicator and demanded that the crime not go unpunished.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (Oacnudh) and the Human Rights Commissioner in Honduras, Blanca Izaguirre, condemned the murder of the journalist and asked the State to carry out a prompt and effective investigation.
