Guatemalan Genocide Trial

“Judge Miguel Ángel Gálvez ended a four-hour hearing today in the genocide trial of former Guatemalan dictator Efraín Ríos Montt by accepting all of the witnesses, experts and documents submitted as evidence by the prosecution. The defense, by contrast, failed in its bid to incorporate experts and documentary evidence on behalf of their client, although the judge approved several defense witnesses.”

More on the genocide case against Ríos Montt from Kate Doyle can be found here.

Meanwhile, the latest is that the case is to move into the debate phase, set for August 14th, 2013.
