Guatemala Congress votes again to keep president’s immunity

Friday, September 22, 2017

Guatemala's Congress on Thursday once again voted to maintain beleaguered President Jimmy Morales' immunity and shield him from a probe into suspected illicit campaign funding, a move that could raise tensions among anti-graft protesters.

For the second time this month, lawmakers discussed a motion, pushed by the attorney general's office and the United Nations-backed International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG), to remove Morales' immunity.
