Four Guatemalan Cabinet members step down

Friday, May 22, 2015

Guatemala's interior minister and three other Cabinet officials stepped down amid a growing political crisis over corruption scandals that have prompted calls for President Otto Pérez Molina and others close to him to resign.

Mauricio López Bonilla, a former army lieutenant colonel who has been head of the Interior Ministry since 2012, decided to leave office amid questions over some contracts, the president said.
