Groundbreaking Arrest Made in Guatemalan Disappearance Case

In a break in one of Guatemala’s most notorious human rights crimes, a Guatemalan police officer has been arrested in connection with the abduction and disappearance 25 years ago of labor activist Édgar Fernando García. The arrest, on 5th March, of Héctor Roderico Ramírez Ríos is the result of an investigation of García’s case by Guatemala’s Human Rights Prosecutor using records found recently among the massive archives of the former National Police.
