International News: Guatemala detains former UN anti-corruption commission representative

Posted: Monday, August 28, 2023. 4:42 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Today, Guatemalan authorities detained the former representative of a United Nations-backed anti-corruption commission that was expelled from the country several years ago.

According to the Associated Press, Claudia Gonzalez who worked with the CICIG was arrested in the latest move in the government’s pursuit of those who worked with the commission.

Gonzalez was reportedly charged with abuse of authority by a public servant, when in fact she was not a government employee but served as legal representative of the CICIG.

In addition, Gonzalez has been working as defense attorney for some former anti-corruption prosecutors and officials facing legal action from the current administration.

The administration of President Alejandro Giammattei has been accused by civil society organizations and foreign governments of pursuing those who worked with the U.N. mission.
