A Radio Progreso executive who had received protection since 2009 was found stabbed to death this weekend in the northern Honduran province of Yoro, Reflection, Investigation and Communications Team, or ERIC, director the Rev. Ismael Moreno said.

Carlos Mejia was murdered on Friday night at his house in the city of El Progreso, Moreno said.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights granted “protective measures” to the 31-year-old Mejia five years ago, Moreno said.

Radio Progreso executives confirmed that Mejia, who worked as the station’s marketing manager, was murdered, but the National Police has not issued a statement about the case.

“We are confident that the investigation will be carried out fully, not just in the Carlos Mejia case but so that the murders of all other journalists will not go unpunished,” Moreno, a Jesuit priest, told reporters.
