Friday, May 8th 2015. BMG: Guatemala’s vice president, Roxana Baldetti resigned this morning amid customs corruption scandal.
Baldettie became the first Guatemalan vice president to step down due to a corruption case even though prosecutors have not implicated her in the scandal and she denies involvement.
“Her resignation is due to a personal decision with the only interest being to leave her office voluntarily, to submit herself to and cooperate with whatever investigations may be necessary and above all within the due process,” Perez Molina, the President of Guatemala told the media.
Molina announced the decision after reports linked Baldetti to a ring accused of taking bribes to avoid levying customs taxes. However, Baldetti has denied any wrongdoing.
