Guatemala: International Organizations Reject the Removal of Prosecutor Juan Francisco Sandoval

from Office.

Impunity Watch joins international condemnation of the dismissal of Guatemala's anti-corruption Prosecutor Juan Francisco Sandoval. On 23 July 2021, in a surprising and arbitrary maneuver, Attorney General Consuelo Porras dismissed the Prosecutor investigating the country’s most important corruption cases; a harsh setback for the justice system and the fight against impunity in the country. We join other organizations that promote human rights in Guatemala in condemning this arbitrary act and calling for the reinstatement of Prosecutor Sandoval.
