  • Guatemalan Ex-dictator's Lawyer Shot Dead

    The lawyer representing Guatemala’s former dictator Efrain Rios Montt against genocide charges has been shot to death in the capital. Authorities said Francisco Palomo was shot at least 12 times in the chest and thorax while driving through a residential neighborhood of Guatemala City around midday on Wednesday. There was no immediate word on any suspects. Palomo was a former judge on the Constitutional Court and a longtime friend of Rios Montt. He defended the former dictator in his legal battle against charges of genocide and crimes against humanity. Rios Montt was sentenced to 80 years in prison in 2013, but that conviction was quickly overturned and a new trial ordered. A retrial scheduled for this past January was delayed indefinitely after the defense won a motion to have one of the ...

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.

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.

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

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.

Heavily armed people carried out an attack Tuesday against a detained gang leader who was being transferred to a local hospital in Guatemala City, leaving one dead and 22 wounded. The attackers threw a grenade from their vehicle to the prison van which was taking Paul Alexander Ochoa Mejia, leader of the notorious 'Mara 18', to the National San Juan de Dios Hospital for treatment. Crossfire ensued, leaving one woman dead and 22 wounded, one of them brain dead. '(They)exploded a grenade against one of the vehicles of the Prison System. In that vehicle was Marlon Alexander Ochoa Mejia, alias 'Bloqui' ,who belonging to the 'Mara 18',’ said Giovani Peralta, director of the Prison System in Guatemala. Initial investigations indicated that the attack did not aim to rescue Ochoa, but kill him instead. The attackers ' car was later located three blocks away from the hospital. Several heavy weapons like AK-47 were found inside. No arrests were reported after the National Civil Police (PNC) searched the area. Further investigation would be done through the surveillance cameras nearby. ’Fear is what we feel, fear that something would happen to us. I was with my two kids when they started shooting. It sounded as if they were fireworks at first. When I saw them draw their guns and start shooting, what I did was grabbed my kids and threw them into my own truck,’ said witness Manuel Carias. Ochoa was detained on June 22, 2012, over charges of abscondence, assault, possession of illegal firearms and organized extortions.

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.

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.

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.

Eng/Spanish/Nat The lawyer for an American human rights campaigner in Guatemala has accused the Guatemalan military of fire bombing his car at his home in Washington D-C. It is just the latest in a series of attacks against Jennifer Harbury and people around her. Harbury believes her missing husband - a former guerilla leader - was murdered by the Guatemalan army and she is campaigning to have a military base in the Central American country excavated to find his grave, and those of hundreds of other murdered victims. The burnt-out remains of Jose Pertierra's car stand in his Washington driveway. But if Pertierra is right, this was more than just an act of simple vandalism. He believes he has been targeted by the Guatemalan army - trying to cover up its involvement in massive human rights abuses. His wife thinks the attack was a message. SOUNDBITE: Spanish "After it happened, then we began to think about what happened and that someone tried to give us a scare." SUPER CAPTION: America Calderon, Wife of Jose Pertierra Pertierra wants a Guatemala military base excavated to search for victims of army death squads. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "It was the Guatemalan military trying to intimidate us to not continue the excavation and exhumation of the Las Cabanas military base." SUPER CAPTION: Jose Pertierra, Jennifer Harbury attorney Pertierra works for Jennifer Harbury, a US citizen who is campaigning to find out what happened to her husband, Guatemalan rebel leader Efrain Bamaca, after he disappeared in March 1992. Witnesses say Bamaca was killed and buried inside the Las Cabanas military base. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "It would be very shameful for the Guatemalan military that the international press discover hundreds of hidden graves within a Guatemalan military base. I think that not even skillful spokespersons of the De Leon Carpio government will be able to easily explain this." SUPER CAPTION: Jose Pertierra, Jennifer Harbury attorney Harbury herself, who is currently in Guatemala trying to push her case forward was not surprised that her lawyer was targeted. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well, I'm certainly very distressed and very worried about his safety as well as about the safety of his family. Their car burned in the driveway, next to his house, it could easily have set fire to the house. His wife and three small children live inside. On the other hand, I'm not at all surprised. This is one in a whole series of events, of acts of intimidation." SUPER CAPTION: Jennifer Harbury In November 1994 Harbury went on hunger strike for 32 days outside the National Palace in Guatemala City to press for her demands to be met. She says she will continue campaigning no matter what obstacles are put in her way. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The F-B-I is investigating it as a case of international terrorism, possible international terrorism. It's just one in a very long series of acts of intimidation to try to stop me. I will not be stopped." SUPER CAPTION: Jennifer Harbury The Cabanas military base may hold a grim secret and the end to Jennifer Harbury's long campaign.
