Guatemalan President Resigns Over Corruption Scandal

2015-09-03T02:03:33-07:00

"Democracy Now!" airs weekdays at 9 a.m. PT on KCET.

After a massive public uprising, Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina has resigned. His resignation came just hours after a judge approved the attorney general's arrest warrant for him. This follows the Guatemalan Legislature's unanimous decision to strip him of immunity from prosecution, bowing to popular pressure. Prosecutors said Pérez Molina will be charged with illicit association, taking bribes, and customs fraud. Attorney General Thelma Aldana said Pérez Molina was also being investigated for money laundering, which could lead to the freezing of his assets. Otto Pérez Molina's former vice president and other government officials are facing similar charges. "Democracy Now!" speaks to George Polk Award-winning journalist Allan Nairn in Guatemala City.
