The Honduran armed forces lifted the checkpoints on the highway from El Paraiso province to the border with Nicaragua on Tuesday, which made it easier for the family of ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya to meet him.

Zelaya's wife Xiomara Castro had an order issued by the Honduran Supreme Court of Justice to lift the military checkpoints.

The order was issued shortly after the United States announced a visa suspension for Honduran officers who took part in the coup against Zelaya on June 28.

"They have lifted the checkpoints in each sector of El Paraiso province; we have seen the soldiers are not in the roadblocks," Castro said shortly after resuming her trip.

Castro said that she was on her way to the Nicaraguan border with her two children, Hortensia and Jose Maria, her mother-in-law Hortensia Rosales and Zelaya's followers who had stayed with the family.

"We have won a battle, but we have not reached yet all our ideals and wishes of peace, freedom and justice," she said.

Castro remarked that the soldiers' withdrawal was a transcendent day for her country.
