Is another presidential crisis unfolding in Guatemala?

Friday, August 25, 2017


Guatemala President Jimmy Morales' reported move to try to oust the head of the country's international anti-corruption body, the Cicig, suggests that prosecutors may be uncovering damning evidence against him, including potential ties to international drug traffickers, in a situation that risks precipitating a political crisis.

Guatemalan media reported this week that President Morales may be seeking the removal of Iván Velásquez as head of the Cicig, amid allegations that he has been investigating illicit finances in Morales' 2015 presidential campaign.
