Guatemala | Guernica 37

Guernica 37 investigated incidents of mass torture and sexual violence against the Ixil Maya community and presented the evidence collected before the Spanish National Court in accordance with the principle of Universal Jurisdiction. These investigations contributed to the conviction of the former Guatemalan dictator Efraín Ríos Montt for his responsibility on the Mayan genocide and other criminal acts of torture, enforced disappearances, state terrorism and crimes against humanity. Ríos Montt was sentenced to 80 years imprisonment in the first judgement that officially acknowledged the Mayan genocide.

Culpable, sí. ¡Y además por Genocidio!:
