On May 29th, 2018, The Supreme Court of Justice (CSJ) in Honduras emitted a resolution responding to an action of unconstitutionality against the Support Mission against Corruption and Impunity in Honduras (MACCIH), which challenged the mission’s legality. Though this resolution declared the MACCIH to be constitutional, its preamble also seems to limit the scope of the anti-corruption body’s actions. Honduran politicians and public officials have faced increased scrutiny in the months following the November 2017 election, and in response, have taken legislative action to protect themselves. Seen in this context, this resolution leaves open the opportunity for judicial interpretation that privileges the corrupt and sets back the fight against impunity in the country.
