Guatemala's Morales fires law chief who fought graft

Friday, May 4, 2018


President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala chose a replacement Thursday for chief prosecutor Thelma Aldana, whose investigations earned her renown as an anti-corruption crusader and netted a number of high-level figures including a former president.

Morales’ office announced in a statement that Maria Consuelo Porras Argueta will take over from Aldana on May 16, after Aldana’s four-year term ends.
