Selection of a new Public Prosecutor of the Guatemalan Public Ministry

The ABA Center for Human Rights mobilized efforts to express concern over the the selection process for a new prosecutor general in Guatemala. The ABA joined Lawyers without Borders Canada and the Solicitors’ International Human Rights Groups to write a letter to the Commissioner in Guatemala to ensure that the selection process for a new prosecutor general is met with a fair and transparent process. ABA President James Silkenat issued a Rule of Law Letter to former President of Guatemala Otto Fernando Pérez Molina.
