Former Guatemalan vice-president tells judge she’s innocent

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Guatemala’s former vice president has told a judge that she is innocent of corruption charges and had no role in a wide-ranging criminal conspiracy.

Roxana Baldetti spoke for the first time to a judge about charges related to an alleged scheme to let companies avoid customs duties in exchange for bribes. The fallout forced her resignation in 2015.
