Elsia Paz, President of AHER, said that “as a business community and as Hondurans, we want justice in the case of Ms. Berta Cáceres, however it is not justice if it is at the cost of innocent people, such as Mr. David Castillo.” She later added that this situation is causing a great deal of frustration, feelings of powerlessness, and pain for all Hondurans.

Attorney Juan Carlos Sánchez, representing Mr. David Castillo, said that there is scientific evidence that shows there is no connection whatsoever between his client and DESA with the death of Ms. Berta Cáceres, adding that both Mr. David Castillo and DESA respect Honduran law, and that they always work in accordance with human rights.

Elsia Paz also mentioned the years she worked with Mr. David Castillo, who she says is a father, and an honorable, honest and transparent man. “David is a good human being, professional, and a man of good intentions. He has dedicated a great part of his life to being an entrepreneur and fighting for the well-being of communities, and that is why he is so beloved by the people,” the representative of the Honduran renewable energy sector said.

Elsia Paz also added that the members of AHER at this time are dismayed by the low levels of legal certainty in Honduras, and the insecurity of those who, responsibly and legally, are drivers of the economy and major job creators in the country.
