Honduras Issues Arrest Warrant for Suspected Mastermind in Berta Cáceres Assassination

HeadlineDec 06, 2023

Honduran authorities have issued an arrest warrant for the suspected mastermind of the 2016 murder of Indigenous environmental leader Berta Cáceres. Daniel Atala Midence is the former financial manager of the hydroelectric company DESA. Berta Cáceres was assassinated as she led the fight against DESA’s massive hydroelectric dam on a river in southwestern Honduras that’s sacred to the Lenca people. Last year, David Castillo, a former U.S.-trained Honduran military officer and businessman, was sentenced to over 22 years for his role in ordering and planning the assassination.
