Honduras Supreme Court Upholds Dismissal of Zelaya Charges


Honduras' Supreme Court has rejected a prosecution appeal of a court ruling that dismissed the last two corruption charges against exiled president Manuel Zelaya.

The court's removes an obstacle to Zelaya's possible return to Honduras.

A decision to allow Zelaya back into Honduras may help the country gain readmittance into the Organization of American States.

Zelaya has been living in the Dominican Republican since being ousted in a 2009 coup.

He was initially accused of abusing his authority and stealing public funds.
