Honduras: Association for a More Just Society (ASJ)

The Association for a More Just Society (ASJ) is an organization based in Honduras whose work focuses on improving access to justice for all sectors of society and working to promote human rights. Since 2004, the ASJ has been investigating violations of labour rights by private security firms. Lawyers working for the ASJ in Honduras face ongoing intimidation and risks to their personal security in response to this work. Sources indicate that the harassment, intimidation and abduction of ASJ lawyers are the result of the organization’s investigation of security companies and promotion of labour rights.
