Honduran Lawyers Quit Jobs Amid Violence

Tegucigalpa, October 4 (RHC)-- Some two thousand law professionals in northern Honduras quit their jobs amidst the wave of violence in the country, which has claimed the live of many lawyers.

According to Moises Canales, president of the Lawyers' College in the northern city of San Pedro Sula, insecurity has been the cause for many lawyers to have left the country.

“We have a worthy job, but regrettably we feel threatened and most of my colleagues tell me that they leave because they cannot risk their live,” Canales said.

Some 68 murders of lawyers have been reported in Honduras under the government led by President Porfirio Lobo, since he took power in 2010.
