He also accuses the president and those around him of being involved in a money laundering scheme.

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 Guatemala's new president has promised a fresh democratic future for his battered country. Alvaro Arzu is the third popularly elected president to take power since military rule ended in 1986. At his inauguration ceremony the new president vowed to control the military and tackle Guatemala's most severe problems: crime, poverty and a 35-year-old civil war. Guatemala's new president- Alvaro Arzu- was inaugurated Sunday in a ceremony in Guatemala City. Arzu is the third democratically elected president to take power since military rule ended in 1986. The new president will replace Ramiro de Leon Carpio who was appointed by the Congress in 1993 after his predecessor Jorge Serrano tried unsuccessfully to seize absolute power. Wearing the white and sky-blue presidential sash Arzu urged his countrymen to work hard for Guatemala's future. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "And we've lived a recent history of internal conflict which has divided us filled us with pain. It is a big challenge and a difficult road and that's why we must make a bigger effort and develop our capabilities, our values and our strengths in order to advance." SUPER CAPTION: Alvaro Arzu, President of Guatemala Arzu- a former Guatemala City mayor- narrowly defeated lawyer Alfonso Portillo in the January 7 runoff. His pro-business Advanced National Party will hold 43 of 80 seats in the legislature. Arzu has vowed to control the military, which remains influential and has long been blamed for the majority of Guatemala's human rights abuses. He has also promised to tackle Guatemala's most daunting problems: widespread crime, severe poverty and a 35-year-old civil war which has cost at least 120-thousand lives. The new president will face a difficult challenge. But with a legislative majority and a lack of allegiance to the military many hope Arzu will carry out his promises to sweep away the bootprint of prior dictatorships.

Wide of courtroom, judges reading sentence STORYLINE A Guatemala appeals court on Tuesday reduced prison sentences by 10 years against two former soldiers in the 1998 killing of a human rights crusading Roman Catholic bishop. In June 2001, a three-judge panel convicted retired Colonel Byron Lima Estrada and his son, Captain Byron Lima Oliva, in the killing of Juan Gerardi, who was bludgeoned to death with a concrete block in the garage of his Guatemala City seminary in April 1998. Lima Estrada and Lima Oliva were assigned co-responsibility in the killing and sentenced to 30 years behind bars, but lawyers successfully argued on appeal that more than one person cannot be convicted of a killing according to Guatemalan law. Reclassified on Tuesday as "accomplices" in the slaying, the two men received revised sentences of 20 years each from a three-judge panel. Prosecutors can appeal the decision to the Supreme Court, Guatemala's second-highest tribunal. Also on Tuesday, the judges upheld a 20-year sentence against Reverend Mario Orantes, Gerardi's assistant. The bishop's death came two days after he presented a Catholic Church human rights office report blaming the military for the overwhelming majority of atrocities committed during Guatemala's 1960-1996 civil war, which killed 200,000. Sergeant Mario Obdulio Villanueva also had been convicted as having co-responsibility in Gerardi's slaying and was sentenced to 30 years. He was killed, however, when fights between inmates broke out during a prison riot in 2002. Orantes' lawyer said with consideration for good conduct the men could be released within four years, having already served six years. The appeal had sought to free all three men or provide them new trials. Lima Oliva protested the revised sentence, arguing before reporters on Tuesday that his prosecution was motivated by politics. The same court of appeals threw out the convictions and ordered new trials for the four men two years ago, but the Supreme Court upheld the original rulings. That decision was later endorsed by the Court of Constitutionality, Guatemala's highest court.

Mr Guerra told AFP that he met with Mr McAfee at a Guatemala City hotel on Tuesday. He said: "I have to manage his political asylum." Mr McAfee, 67, has been on the run since his neighbour, the American businessman Gregory Viant Faull, was shot dead last month. Police in Belize, where the murder took place, say he is not a suspect, but Mr McAfee believes he will be "summarily executed" if he hands himself in. Belize's prime minister has denied the claim and called the 67-year-old paranoid and "bonkers".

SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Luciano Teixeira Reis, resident of Rio: "I pay taxes, I'm charged for everything (meaning the population pay taxes for everything) what do I obtain in exchange? The situation in Rio's state and in other states is shameful. Future perspectives? None. There are no perspectives for Brazil, unless the "Car Wash" (federal police investigation into corruption scandal involving the state oil company Petrobras) continues and the judge Sergio Moro and the prosecutors who today are capable and apt to finish their work, arrest and put in jail whoever is responsible." 4. Various of people walking 5. SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Jose Niemeyer, analyst and professor at IBMEC (Brazilian capital markets institute): "This news about corruption increases the legal insecurity regarding business in Brazil, increases the investor's lack of confidence when investing in a country that is reaching in a disastrous way, or winning a "championship" for the most corrupt countries, when compared with countries in very under-developed regions of the world. So that's bad for the Brazilian macro economy." 6. Pan from books to Niemeyer speaking 7. SOUNDBITE (Portuguese) Jose Niemeyer, analyst and professor at IBMEC (Brazilian capital markets institute): "But I insist that corruption often takes place in the public sector but should also be analyzed in its origin in the private sector."

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Manfredo Maroquin, head of anti-corruption organization Accion Ciudadana "Citizen Action": "Brazil and Guatemala are the countries who have dropped the most in the index for corruption. Brazil has dropped five points and Guatemala dropped four points, this means that the perception of corruption in both nations has increased as it never has in the history of both countries." 11. Close of book on corruption 12. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Oscar Morales Montufar, lawyer: "I believe that corruption still exists but the society in Guatemala has awaken and has started a process for change. I believe that Guatemala should be remembered in this time as the society that got tired of state money and began asking authorities for a change in the way they govern." 13. People in the street 14. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Elidia Castilo, resident of Guatemala city: "There have been changes, just by having all these people arrested there has been a change, it is the beginning for the country to start progressing. It is really what we all need for there to be a sense of ethics in all public and private positions. I think we are on the right path." 15. Guatemala's national palace STORYLINE: Brazil has dropped the most in this year's Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index, according to the report released on Wednesday. In the midst of a massive corruption scandal at the state-owned oil company Petrobras, the South American country posted the biggest decline, falling 5 points to a score of 38 and dropping 7 positions to 76th place. Guatemala was just behind, dropping 4 points to a score of 28 and ranking 123rd. The index is based on expert opinions of public sector corruption, looking at a range of factors like whether governmental leaders are held to account or go unpunished for corruption, the perceived prevalence of bribery, and whether public institutions respond to citizens' needs. After leaving office, he was arrested and sent to jail. Prosecutors accuse him of illicit association, customs fraud and bribery.

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.

On Sunday morning, May 10, 2009, Rodrigo Rosensberg, a successful Guatemalan lawyer, was shot three times in the face as he rode his bicycle near his Guatemala City apartment. The murder would have become another statistic in a country plagued by corruption and impunity, and where Mexican drug cartels exert increasing influence, had it not been for a video Rosenberg recorded 3 days prior to being murdered. In the video, distributed after his death, Rosenberg points fingers from the grave and accuses Guatemalas president Alvaro Colom, the First Lady Sandra Torres, the presidents private secretary Gustavo Alejos, and Gregorio Valdes, a top campaign fundraiser for president Colom.

Spanish/Nat Four American college students who were raped and robbed in a bus attack in Guatemala in January, returned there on Wednesday to give evidence in court against their alleged assailants. The students, from St. Mary's College in Maryland, were accompanied by three faculty members from the college - as well as college administrators and relatives. Two men are being held in custody in connection with the attack and arrest warrants have been issued for at least four more. Accompanied by Guatemalan police and security guards from the U-S Embassy, the students from St. Mary's College in Maryland were led into a courtroom on Wednesday in the city of Escuintla to testify against at least two suspects held in custody. The students were on an anthropology tour in Guatemala when their bus was hijacked by a gang of heavily armed men in a pick-up truck earlier this year. The students and faculty members were held for more than 90 minutes, along with a Guatemalan driver and a tour guide. Four of the female students were raped. Ten of the thirteen students on the bus, including the four rape victims, returned to give evidence at the trial, in the city of Escuintla, close to the capital, Guatemala City. Maryland state Assistant General Attorney Carmen Shepard, who is accompanying the students called on the media to respect their privacy. SOUNDBITE: (English) "A total of ten students and three faculty members have returned to Guatemala to provide important information for bringing this case to trial. We expect to complete all the proceedings by Friday. I want to tell you that all of us who are involved in this case are very proud of the courageous students and their decision to return. We are asking you as a favour to please respect their privacy, to please not publish their names, should you have them, and to please not publish their photographs. Otherwise, we will cooperate in giving information." SUPER CAPTION: Carmen Shepard, Assistant Attorney General for Maryland state The group will remain in Guatemala for at least a week and will help prosecutors reconstruct the crime. Shepard said she and the students had faith in the Guatemalan legal system but wanted to help see that justice was done. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We are committed to the process. We cannot tell you what is going to happen in the end result, but obviously we are here to be a part of it." SUPER CAPTION: Carmen Shepard, Assistant Attorney General for Maryland state It is unclear exactly how many suspects have been detained in connection with the attack, but two or three men are believed to be in police custody. According to a lawyer representing the students, arrest warrants have been issued for at least four other men thought to have been involved in the attack. The gang is also suspected of attacking a Guatemalan family and a Mexican family on holiday in the area at the time the bus attack took place.

Spanish/Nat Guatemalans have voted today in the third presidential elections since military rule ended in 1986. 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.

President Alvaro Colom expressed confidence on Thursday that an international commission investigating the murder of a Guatemalan lawyer will find those responsible for the killing that sent the Central American nation into a political crisis Rodrigo Rosenberg 47 was killed May 10. In a video released at his funeral he claimed Colom s government was linked to a corruption scandal at a government bank and said any attack on him would be an attempt to cover that up. Colom denies involvement. The video led to massive protests in Guatemala in which demonstrators demanded that Colom step down. During an interview in New York Colom said he was completely sure the murder would be resolved and whoever it is that is involved will have to pay the price of justice. Colom suggested he was a victim of an attempt to topple the government. Accusing a president of murder is a serious accusations and because it is a lie because it is false is sedition Colom said. The Guatemalan leader explained he has remained respectful of the investigation being carried out by the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala CIGCIG. Authorities have arrested ten people including six police officers in connection to Rosenberg s killing. Colom also spoke about the regional impact of the military coup in Honduras saying that Central America has certainly seen the effects of the crisis. Though he said his government had no hand in ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya s return to Honduras earlier this week Colom expressed his optimism that it will facilitate the negotiations to reach a solution to the political crisis. I think President Zelaya s return opens the door so that the problem is solved by Honduras with Honduras and among Hondurans he said.

English/Nat The American lawyer who went on a hunger strike to learn the fate of her Guatemalan rebel husband has postponed plans to exhume his body. Jennifer Harbury is searching for the body of her husband, a missing guerilla leader whose disappearance attracted international attention last year when it was linked to a CIA-paid colonel in the Guatemalan army. But a digging permit issued by the Guatemalan military only covers one day - too short, says Harbury, to find the body. The search for her husband has brought Jennifer Harbury, an American attorney, to the jungle of Guatemala. This remote military outpost, near the Mexican border, is where Harbury believes her husband is buried. Efrain Bamaca, a high-profile Guatemalan guerilla leader, disappeared in March 1992. His disappearance became front page news last year when Harbury held hunger strikes in Guatemala City and in front of the White House. The American attorney's story attracted international attention when she claimed that her husband's death was linked to a CIA-paid colonel in the Guatemalan army. Bamaca disappeared after a firefight between rebel and government forces. Since then, the military has insisted that Bamaca died in the firefight. However, Harbury believes that her husband was taken hostage, held for some time and tortured before he died. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well originally I received a report about two weeks ago from the State department saying that they thought that my husband's body was buried out here. That's very logical cause we're very close to the two bases where he was secretly detained tortured and eventually murdered. We're very close to those bases. It also, from another source, has told me that it's a good source that gave that information although state department has not told me that. More importantly, we've received many reports to myself and to other institutions here from local citizens saying they've seen graves out there of people who've been murdered here for years, since 1980. It's a dumping ground for bodies." SUPER CAPTION: Jennifer Harbury But, while Harbury believes she has tracked her husband's body to this spot, her three- year search has hit another obstacle. After a series of false starts last week, Harbury has now discovered that the digging permit is valid only for one day SOUNDBITE: (English) "We were supposed to do the exhumation last Thursday, the national prosecutor and the special prosecutor on the case authorised that it was all green go. It was all legalised. We were called Wednesday night and told it's off. The special prosecutor thought about resigning since his powers had been improperly curtailed, illegally curtailed. The next day we were told, no it's on but not till Monday or Tuesday. Tuesday it was supposed to be on. We came out here, we measured everything got in and everything and then we were told by the colonel here no I still have to check with my commander if it's going to be more than one day. Well since they won't tell me where the grave is, it's going to take more than one day to even cut the grass here right." SUPER CAPTION: Jennifer Harbury Harbury is now waiting to see if the digging permit will be extended so that she can search the whole area for her husband's body.

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
