WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Jack Reed today issued the following statement on the situation in Honduras:

 “I find reports of violence and irregularities related to the November 26 elections in Honduras to be deeply disturbing.  I call upon the Government of Honduras to exercise restraint and demonstrate a commitment to transparency and human rights.  It is critical that all Hondurans’ rights are respected and democratic processes are safeguarded.  The Trump Administration should not turn a blind eye to human rights abuses in Honduras and should be vocal about any election irregularities that may have occurred.”
