Ex-Guatemalan president says he's innocent in graft case

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Former Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina told a judge in Guatemala City Monday that he is innocent of the corruption charges against him.

The former leader is imprisoned while on trial in a purported corruption scheme known as "The Line," which allegedly involved businesses paying bribes to officials to avoid customs duties in 2013 when Perez Molina was president.
