    "slam dunk prima fascia [sic]" case against Zelaya.  The Constitution makes no provision whatsoever for a Constituent Assembly, so it is a leap to suggest that discussing calling one violates a specific provision.

    The allegation that Zelaya's interest in calling for a Constituent Assembly was simply to get himself reelected, as I suggested above, doesn't fit the facts of the situation.

      Had suggested that there wasn't a need for a trial. I suggest otherwise. As to the "slam dunk" comment any prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich so what I was getting at wasn't whether or not Zelaya would be found guilty or not (though that is what would happen) I argue that the rule of law be pursued and he have his day in court.
