Another yop aid to Guatemala's Perez steps down

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

A high-ranking aide to Guatemalan President Otto Pérez stood down over allegations of illicit enrichment, joining a long list of senior officials embroiled in graft scandals that have rocked the country.

The departure of Gustavo Martinez, secretary general to the presidency and fiancee of Perez's daughter, follows the resignation last month of Vice President Roxana Baldetti and a number of cabinet ministers, as well as the arrest of several officials, including the head of the Guatemalan central bank.
