Guatemala gives visa to head of UN commission

Wednesday, October 18, 2017


The Guatemalan Foreign Ministry notified on Tuesday Ivan Velasquez, the head of the UN-sponsored International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (Cicig), that it was granting him a visa, changing course after denying the corruption investigator a visa last week citing irregularities in the application process.

“The Cicig fulfilled all the requirements for officially obtaining a visa and they were notified,” a Foreign Ministry spokesman told Efe.
