Latin American Nations Defy Inter-American Court

Actions by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and Commission on Human Rights -- considered a last resort for journalist protection -- are being defied by Venezuela and Honduras. Both countries are members of the Organization of American States and the OAS human rights system, which binds them by treaty to actions by the court and commission, but such defiance is becoming common, according to Reporters without Borders.
