Guatemalan Prosecutor Alleges Persecution by US State Department (Spanish) | Rafael Curruchiche Impunity Observer

    • News

Rafael Curruchiche—Guatemalan special prosecutor against impunity since August 2021—shares how the Special Prosecutor’s Office against Impunity (FECI) has been used in previous years to persecute political opponents. For example, former FECI chief Juan Francisco Sandoval—praised on multiple occasions by the US State Department—has four active arrest warrants for abuse of authority, breach of duty, and obstruction of judicial processes.

Curruchiche contends his own inclusion on the Engel List of purportedly corrupt and/or antidemocratic actors is mainly a political decision of the US State Department. He has not been able to present his side of the story. Unlike those who prepare the Engel List, Curruchiche believes public workers in FECI must follow due process and set a precedent of robust legal cases.
