Guatemala investigates Lake Amatitlan clean-up plan

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

A judge in Guatemala has ordered that a former vice-president be held in prison over an allegedly fraudulent plan to clean up pollution at Lake Amatitlan.

Roxana Baldetti is accused of leading a scheme in which millions were spent on a product to decontaminate the lake. Testing revealed the product, which was never used, was mainly sea water.
