Guatemalan President has dismissed an allegation

Posted on: October 7, 2009

This year, Guatemala went thru a big problem with their President, Alvaro Colom.  Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom has dismissed an allegation that he was behind the death of a lawyer who left a video blaming the president if anything happened to him.

It was on August when Rosemberg, a lawyer who was shot and killed, left a video surfaced in which, Rosenberg sat behind a desk and calmly spoke into a microphone linking Colom and an aide to his death. Rosenberg’s video said he was targeted for talking about the death of prominent businessman Khalil Musa and his daughter in April. They were killed, because they had refused to participate in acts of corruption as the president wanted.

After the video was published, Guatemala enters into a period in which everyone wanted to know the truth. The people started making protests in the whole country. It was very interesting seeing so many people around the roads wearing white clothes, to represent peace and loyalty.
