    Spanish/Nat Relatives of a murdered Guatemalan politician have launched an intense lobbying campaign in the United States in their attempt to bring his killers to justice. Jorge Carpio Nicolle - a cousin of Guatemala's current president - was gunned down two years ago on his way to a political meeting. Carpio's family believe the military ordered his killing after he refused to endorse an army-backed proposal to grant an amnesty to human rights abusers. The Carpio case has come to symbolise the Guatemalans' belief that the rule of law exists only on paper and not even Guatemala's elite are safe.

The 3.7 million (m) people registered to vote will choose between conservative businessman Alvaro Arzu, and Alfonso Portillo, a candidate backed by former dictator retired General Efrain Rios Montt. Businessman, former foreign minister and mayor of Guatemala City, Alvaro Arzu, has been favoured to win having easily won the first round on November 12th that eliminated 17 candidates. Alvaro Arzu arrived to vote today surrounded by hoards of people, his popularity apparent. Polls opened at 8 a.m. (1300 GMT) and were due to close at 7pm (0000 GMT). Prominent businessman and former Guatemala City mayor Alvaro Arzu, 49, is representing the conservative Advanced National Party, which he helped found in 1990. He disagreed that the turnout for these elections was very low. Nor did he agree that Guatemala's citizens are more concerned with the staggering cost of living and low salaries than voting. SOUNDBITE: Spanish "On the contrary - residents of the capital are indignant and have even more reason to vote." SUPER CAPTION: Alvaro Arzu His main opponent, lawyer and economist Alfonso Portillo, 44, is the candidate of the rightist Guatemalan Republican Front founded by a former dictator, retired General Efrain Rios Montt. SOUNDBITE: Spanish "I am absolutely certain and convinced that my vote is for Guatemala." SUPER CAPTION: Alfonso Lopez Portillo Both candidates promise to tackle rising crime, poverty, tax reform, the failing judicial system. They also promise to continue peace talks with leftist guerrillas in an attempt to end a 35-year civil war, which has claimed 120,000 lives. Killings and human rights abuses continue despite a March 1995 human rights accord. The guerrillas have declared a ceasefire to ensure a peaceful vote. General Efrain Rios Montt was also seen at the polling station casting his vote. SOUNDBITE: Spanish "However, I believe that democracy is a citizens behavior. Consequently, in the dimension in which we participate, we have the right to ask authorities to comply with their obligations." SUPER CAPTION: General Efrain Rios Montt However, unknown saboteurs attempting to stop the voting scattered nails across some key roads entering Guatemala City and around some voting centres in the capital. The move caused dozens of flat tyres, despite the best efforts of residents who tried to brush the nails away. The winner of the election will succeed Ramiro de Leon Carpio next Sunday to begin his four year term in power.

Authorities standing outside prison STORYLINE: A riot at a prison outside the Guatemalan capital killed 17 inmates and seriously injured at least 30 others, authorities said on Tuesday. Trouble began after hundreds of prisoners demanding more visiting rights and calling for the dismissal of some guards staged a small uprising, seizing part of the 1,228-inmate Pavoncito prison late on Monday. One prisoner was killed and three more were injured, but authorities sent in negotiators and thought they could end the riot without further violence, said a spokesman for the Guatemala City fire department. Negotiations never got off the ground, however. As talks with authorities broke down, a group of prisoners captured Julio Beteta, an inmate who police say controlled drugs and weapons distribution within the prison. The Guatemala fire department said inmates used makeshift knives and machetes to decapitate Beteta and then "paraded his head around in front of other prisoners." Prison authorities confirmed that one of the inmates who died had been decapitated, but said the victim hadn't been identified. The decapitation touched off a bloody battle between several different inmate factions, and prisoners began using machetes to try to seize control of different parts of the prison. The riot took a turn for the horrific when members of one gang rounded up 14 injured prisoners from another gang, doused them with gasoline and set them on fire, Najera said. All of those set ablaze died of the resulting burns. Police agents in riot gear took back the prison and restored order early on Tuesday. Two more inmates who were injured in clashes with police died in a nearby hospital after authorities had put an end to the riot. At least 30 inmates were rushed to a string of area hospitals were they were being treated for serious machete wounds. Pavoncito is a penitentiary on Guatemala City's outskirts where prisoners are taken before or during their trials.

Spanish/Nat Relatives of a murdered Guatemalan politician have launched an intense lobbying campaign in the United States in their attempt to bring his killers to justice. Jorge Carpio Nicolle - a cousin of Guatemala's current president - was gunned down two years ago on his way to a political meeting. Carpio's family believe the military ordered his killing after he refused to endorse an army-backed proposal to grant an amnesty to human rights abusers. The Carpio case has come to symbolise the Guatemalans' belief that the rule of law exists only on paper and not even Guatemala's elite are safe. Jorge Carpio was on his way to a political meeting in Chichicastenango, 100 miles west of the capital Guatemala City, when his minibus was ambushed on 3 July 1993. Masked gunmen pumped three bullets into his head - three political colleagues travelling with him were also shot. Carpio's wife Marta escaped unharmed. SOUNDBITE: (In Spanish) "Because it's not easy for a person to be the spouse, and we had a good marriage, they killed him in front of me and he died practically in my arms." SUPER CAPTION: Marta Arrivillaga de Carpio - widow of Jorge Carpio Jorge Carpio was publisher of the leading Guatemalan daily "El Grafico" and twice a presidential candidate. As leader of the National Centrist Union, Carpio had for years been seeking a peaceful solution to his country's conflicts, a solution his newspaper also urged. In the weeks before his death, he'd clashed with military leaders, after refusing to endorse - either in his newspaper or his party - an army-backed proposal to grant a retroactive amnesty to human rights abusers. The Guatemalan government attributed the Carpio killings to leftist guerrillas then shifted the blame to common criminals. From the outset Carpio's family rejected the official version as absurd. Despite the family connection, current President Ramiro de Leon Carpio proved little help in the search for the truth. Jorge Carpio's family feel the president has become a pawn of the Guatemalan military. SOUNDBITE: (In Spanish) "It's amazing that two years after the assassination of Jorge only one person has been arrested a member of the civil patrol and it's also incredible that the President Ramiro de Leon, who was a cousin, has done nothing about this. We believe he is under intense pressure or that he does not have the political will to resolve the case. But if the pressure by the military continues I think it will be better if he resigns and stops covering up the murder of cousin." SUPER CAPTION: Karen Fischer de Carpio - victim's daughter-in-law From the start the official inquiry into the Carpio killings was marked by a string of irregularities. Forensic evidence mysteriously disappeared as did reports and photographs from the autopsies. Even the courthouse where records of the case had been kept was burned down - a firebomb was later found in the ruins. All this reinforces the Carpio family's view that a wall of impunity still exists in Guatemala. SOUNDBITE: (In Spanish) "The problem in Guatemala is the system of impunity and it's going be quite difficult to tear down this wall of impunity." SUPER CAPTION: Karen Fischer - victim's daughter-in-law Defying death threats and apparent assassination attempts, Carpio's widow and daughter-in-law have launched an intense lobbying campaign in the United States Congress in their search for justice. Jorge Carpio's case has proved different from that of the thousands of students, trade-unionists, peasants and teachers who have also died in Guatemala's brutal civil conflict. Even the elite it seems are not safe from the death squads in Guatemala.

Thousands of people take to the streets of the Guatemalan capital demanding President Alvaro Colom's resignation. Their protests come after prominent lawyer Rodrigo Rosenberg was murdered. He was killed in an upscale suburb of Guatemala City on Sunday. This video footage and a written statement emerged after his death.   In the film, Rosenberg says Colom will order a hit man to kill him. [Rodrigo Rosenberg, Murdered Lawyer]: "If you are seeing this message it means I have been murdered by President Alvaro Colom with the help of Don Gustavo Alejos and Mr. Gregorio Valdez." He also accuses the president and those around him of being involved in a money laundering scheme. [Rodrigo Rosenberg, Murdered Lawyer]: "The reason I am dead and the reason why you are seeing this message is only and exclusively because during my final moments I was the lawyer of Mr. Khalil Musa and of his daughter Marjorie Musa, who were cowardly murdered by President Alvaro Colom with the knowledge of his wife Sandra de Colom and the help of Gregorio Valdez and Gregorio Alejos." The incident has angered many here, who say without justice a civil war could break out. [Jorge Armando Callejas, Representative, Group Against Guatemalan President]: "In the future, if there is no justice, a civil war will break loose, because we are facing lies told by the government and their followers." The government denies the accusations. [Fernando Barillas, Government Spokesperson]: "The government categorically rejects that accusation, which through recordings and written declarations have been distributed in some media." A U.N. backed body will investigate the case after it said the Attorney General's office may not be able to carry out an independent investigation.

By Sofia Menchu GUATEMALA CITY, July 4 (Reuters) - Javier Duarte, a former state governor from Mexico's ruling party wanted on charges of embezzlement and organized crime, is likely to be extradited from Guatemala by the end of this month, his lawyer said on Tuesday. During a break in proceedings at a courthouse in Guatemala City discussing federal charges against Duarte, his lawyer told Reuters it was now most likely the ex-governor of the Gulf state of Veracruz would be extradited to Mexico before the end of July. "We calculate that the extradition process will take between 15 and 18 working days," Carlos Velasquez said. Last week, Duarte accepted a request relating to state offences for his extradition, and in Tuesday's court appearance the 43-year-old also agreed to the federal extrad

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe With a crime rate that Human Rights Watch identifies as one of the highest in the Americas, Guatemala's citizens are stepping in to fill the gaps that the police cannot. They say they are not vigilantes, but are simply doing what is necessary to keep their neighborhoods safe. Rights groups, however, say that neighbourhood security is the sole responsibility of the police, and that allowing citizens to police their own areas could lead to rights abuses. There have been 15 vigilante-related killings in the first three months of 2011 alone. Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports from Quetzaltenango, Guatemala's second largest city.

Syphilis Laboratory (2011): The legacy of US syphilis experiments still plagues Guatemala For downloads and more information visit http://journeyman.tv/62229/short-films/syphilis-laboratory.html Obama may have apologised last year for the 1940s US medical experiments that intentionally infected Guatemalans with syphilis, but as this startling report shows, its legacy continues to destroy lives. Soldiers, prostitutes, the mentally ill and even orphaned children; no one was safe from the American government's decision to deliberately infect them with syphilis. The costs are still being felt today in Guatemala as the infected and their descendants, who have inherited the disease, all bear the painful scars of those experiments. Dr Cutler moved his base when he was banned from practising in the States, after watching the effects of syphilis on African-American men who had no idea they were infected. Treating the disease "would interfere with the study", Cutler said. All are victims of a "serious crime" says the lawyer pressing a lawsuit against the US government on behalf of the Guatemalans. Obama's apology for this atrocity is a start but it isn't enough to mend the ruined lives of the surviving human guinea pigs.

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Rodrigo Rosenberg, lawyer: "Unfortunately, if you are watching and listening to this message it is because I was assassinated by President Alvaro Colom, with the help of Gustavo Alejos and Gregorio Valdez. STORYLINE: A court in Guatemala has convicted and sentenced eight men to prison for the death of a prominent lawyer who apparently paid them in advance to kill him. Rodrigo Rosenberg even made a video before his murder accusing the country's president of arranging the killing to cover up a corruption scandal. Public protests erupted after the death in 2009 and widespread publication of the video. But a United Nations investigation sanctioned by the government found that Rosenberg had arranged his own death by hiring the hit men who killed him. Investigators said Rosenberg may have been motivated by personal problems. It was not clear what the problems may have been and there were no further details available. Four of the accused were sentenced to between 38 years and 48 years on homicide and other charges, and four other received eight-year sentences for 'illegal association'. Two men had reduced sentences of two and twelve years after co-operating with the prosecution. Another suspect was released after giving prosecution evidence. The court was told eight were members or collaborators of a gang of hit men which planned and carried out the killing, allegedly for a payment that originated with Rosenberg himself. The prosecution based its case in part on recorded telephone calls linking them to the killing of Rosenberg, who was shot to death while riding his bicycle. In a video distributed after his death, Rosenberg is seen saying: "If you are watching this message, it is because I was assassinated by President Alvaro Colom." Rosenberg, a 47-year-old corporate lawyer who served as assistant dean at a private university, claimed Colom's administration was linked to a corruption scandal at a government bank and said any attack on him would be an attempt to cover that up. The president denied any involvement, and his government has suggested that criminal or political interests were behind the vid You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/988d9c0ffb815bb1ae6a45f749bc518c Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Mid of Guerra handing in asylum request for McAfee 3. Cutaway of press outside of Ministry of Foreign Affairs building 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Telesforo Guerra, John McAfee's lawyer: "We are asking for political asylum. This is a Latin American institution. It was born in America. So, I told them, I think no country in Latin America can deny a solicitation of asylum and in this case, especially (as) Guatemala is the first of the nations that signed the treaty of asylum between Latin American countries." 5. Mid of sign at Ministry of Foreign Affairs building that reads (Spanish): "Immigrant Care Centre" 6. Wide of Ministry of Foreign Affairs building STORYLINE A Guatemalan official said on Wednesday that software company founder John McAfee has been arrested in Guatemala City for entering the country illegally. Interior Minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla said McAfee was detained by police at a hotel in an upscale neighbourhood. Earlier on Wednesday, McAfee said he had formally requested asylum in Guatemala claiming he is being persecuted in Belize, where he is wanted for questioning in the fatal shooting of neighbour Gregory Viant Faull. Faull was shot to death in early November on the Belize island where both men lived. McAfee's lawyer Telesforo Guerra dropped off the asylum request at the Immigrant Care Centre located within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building in Guatemala City. "We are asking for political asylum. This is a Latin American institution. It was born in America. So, I told them, I think no country in Latin America can deny a solicitation of asylum, especially as Guatemala is the first of the nations that signed the treaty of asylum between Latin American countries," said Guerra after submitting the request. McAfee went on the run from Belize last month after officials tried to question him about Faull's death. He had earlier said he didn't plan to leave Belize but ultimately did because he thought "Sam" was in danger, referring to the young woman who has accompanied him since he went into hiding. He has claimed that he was with the same woman on the night Faull was killed. The US citizen had engaged in a series of clashes with neighbours and authorities over allegations he kept aggressive dogs, illegal weapons and drug paraphernalia in his beachfront home on a Belize island. McAfee has denied any wrongdoing and said he was being persecuted for refusing to donate to local politicians. He dropped out of sight for weeks after police said they were seeking him, although he grabbed global attention by recounting his life on the run through a blog and regular phone calls with reporters. In an email to the Associated Press McAfee described how he tried to cover his tracks by getting a double carrying a North Korean passport in his name arrested in Mexico for "pre-planned misbehaviour". According to McAfee the plan misfired when the double was released from the jail. Belizean officials have denied persecuting McAfee, and the country's prime minister has said he suspects McAfee is mentally unstable. Police in Belize have said there is no warrant for McAfee's arrest. Since there are no restrictions on his travels, it's unclear why he would need any special status in order to stay in Guatemala. Faull's home was a couple of houses down from the compound where McAfee kept several noisy dogs and armed guards and entertained a steady stream of young women brought in from the mainland.
