Are the ZEDEs an illegal regime?
Like many countries, Honduras’ constitution authorizes a number political subdivisions of the Honduran government. ZEDEs are a legal subdivision authorized by article 329 of the Honduran constitution. The Honduran Supreme Court has ruled in favor of their legality multiple times. To say they are illegal is to say the Honduran constitution and Supreme Court are illegal. Whatever criticisms one may have with Honduran politics, there is no evidence of illegal behavior in regard to the establishment of the ZEDE regime. However, the Castro Administration’s failure to recognize the constitutional rights of ZEDEs is illegal, well-documented, and is currently being legally adjudicated.
Are ZEDE like mini countries?
No. Like places such as the USA, UK, Switzerland, and others, Honduras has political subdivisions that have a fair degree of autonomy from the federal government of Honduras. Many have falsely confused autonomy from the Honduran federal government— another subdivision of the Honduran State— with autonomy from the Honduran State itself. However, like the Honduran Federal government, the ZEDEs derive all their legal authority from the Constitution of Honduras (see Article 329). As a result this legal authority can legally be altered or abolished via the democratic process outlined in the Honduran constitution.
Are foreigners using ZEDEs to colonize Honduras?
Colonization is a process of establishing foreign control over target territories or people. Given that the top official of a ZEDE must be Honduran citizens by birth, the Honduran institution CAMP oversees the ZEDEs, and Honduras’ constitution, criminal law, and treaty obligations apply to the ZEDEs the same as anywhere in Honduras, the ZEDEs are indisputably under the control of the Honduran state and people. The confusion likely comes from the fact the ZEDE political subdivision allows for private companies, including those with foreign ties, to provide many public goods and services that are traditionally provided by government entities. However, this is an increasingly common practice. Sandy Springs is a famous example in America of the privatization of traditional city services, but there are no shortages of private companies, including foreign ones, run schools, roads, and other goods and services that often are run by the government.
