Thursday, July 16, 2015

Guatemala's leading vice presidential candidate and former central bank governor was accused of corruption on Wednesday, in the first such scandal to hit the opposition party, two months ahead of presidential elections.

The United Nations' International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala will seek a preliminary hearing to strip Edgar Barquin of his immunity over allegations of illicit association.
