My gf grew up in a tiny village in the mountains of Honduras. She bought property there close to where her father still lives about 5 mins away.
The neighbor where she has started to construct her home has always been a jerk. He grew up like the "king" of the village and would always bully people in the village and get away with it.
His home has a few pools which is his part time business and for many years the run off would go on her property. Now that she has built the first level of the home(and living in it) she is no longer taking his habits and standing up to him and the tensions between her and this man are growing.
I don't live in Honduras but visit her quite a bit.
To make a long story short, what is the legal system like? I realize the cops can be sometimes crooked.
However this man has repeated said he wanted to kill her off, but had only mentioned it to others and denied it when directly asked.
This weekend she was planting some flowers on public property but close to the border and they were fighting verbally and then he said "believe me, one day if you piss me off enough, I'll kill you and hide you far far away"
She's at her wits end and wants to call a lawyer.
Her whole family lives close by and she has multiple small properties close by so uprooting and moving to roatan or smuggling her to Usa aren't realistic.
