Honduran Prosecutors: Energy Executive Masterminded Berta Cáceres Murder

HeadlineFeb 07, 2019

In Honduras, prosecutors have presented evidence charging a former energy company executive with masterminding the murder of environmental activist Berta Cáceres, who was shot dead in her home in March of 2016. Cáceres’s assassination came as she led a campaign against a major hydroelectric dam being constructed on indigenous land. At the time of her death, the company building the dam was led by Roberto David Castillo Mejía, a former military intelligence officer. Prosecutors say Mejía provided logistics and resources to at least one of the seven men who were convicted in November of carrying out Cáceres’s assassination.
