Guatemala leader at crossroads after court blocks expulsion

Wednesday, August 30, 2017


President Jimmy Morales faced a crossroads Wednesday after Guatemala’s highest court ruled he could not expel the head of a U.N. anti-corruption commission from the country.

Morales cannot appeal Tuesday’s decision by the Constitutional Court, and he now faces a separate legal fight over whether he should be stripped of his official immunity and face investigation over possible illicit campaign financing. That decision will be made by another body, the country’s Supreme Court.
